GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham Tests Positive for Covid Despite Being Vaccinated

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham Tests Positive for Covid Despite Being Vaccinated” – below is their description.

Senator Lindsey Graham said he tested positive for Covid-19 despite being vaccinated, becoming at least the third member of Congress to recently report an infection.

The South Carolina Repubican said in a statement that he began having “flu-like” symptoms on Saturday and saw a doctor Monday.

“I feel like I have a sinus infection and at present time I have mild symptoms,” he said.

Graham, 66, said he will quarantine for 10 days, likely taking him out of the Senate for the votes on the bipartisan infrastructure plan that he helped negotiate. And, as the ranking Republican on the Senate Budget Committee, he would be expected to lead GOP opposition to the budget resolution that Democrats also expects to debate before the August recess.
