Graham: There is Room in the Republican Party for Caitlyn Jenner

Transgendered people like Caitlyn Jenner should be accepted into the Republican Party, as long as they agree there is “too much debt (and) too many terrorists,” according to GOP presidential candidate Lindsey Graham.

“We are all in this together,” the South Carolina senator declared during an interview on CNN. He criticized conservative commentators’ condemnation of the former Olympic athlete, who recently underwent a sex change.

“Here's what I would say to the talk show hosts: In the eyes of radical Islam, they hate you as much as they hate Caitlyn Jenner," Graham said. "They hate us all because we won't agree to their view of religion.”

He told CNN’s Dana Bash: "I haven't walked in (Jenner’s) shoes. I don't have all the answers to the mysteries of life. I can only imagine the torment that Bruce Jenner went through. I hope she has found peace.

"I'm a pro-life, traditional marriage kind of guy, but I'm running to be president of the United States. If Caitlyn Jenner wants to be a Republican, she is welcome in my party," Graham said.

He urged Republicans to avoid divisions over social issues. While stressing his opposition to abortion rights and gay marriage, he said he holds those views “without animosity” toward others.
