As Death Toll In South Carolina Rises, Senator Faces Criticism Over Opposition To Sandy Relief

[Lindsey Graham] was not alone in opposing Sandy relief -- fellow Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) also voted no, as did a majority of the House delegation: Republican Reps. Joe Wilson, Jeff Duncan, Trey Gowdy, and Mick Mulvaney.

On Monday, Sen. Scott was in Columbia, surveying flood damage. "Certainly there will be FEMA money," he said.
