South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said on Wednesday, July 15, that he "will go to war for the principles Chick-fil-A stands for" after over 100 students and faculty at Notre Dame University signed an open letter against bringing the chain onto campus.

Graham was recently in the news for blasting President Joe Biden's troop withdrawal plan in Afghanistan, saying that Biden was "paving the way for another 9/11". In April, the senator joined Donald Trump in charging players $25K for their fundraiser tournament, the Trump Graham Golf Classic.

Students submitted a letter to the school's student-run publication headlined "Keep Chick-fil-A away" earlier this month, expressing opposition to the chain's presence on campus, citing "serious ethical concerns." In recent years, the fast-food company has been chastised for payments made by its philanthropic foundation to anti-LGBT organizations.

Graham took to Twitter to say that it was “disappointing to hear” that some students and teachers at the school “want to ban Chick-fil-A from doing business on campus because they disagree with the values held by the Chick-fil-A founders.” “I want everyone in South Carolina and across America to know I have Chick fil-A’s back. I hope we don’t have to, but I will go to war for the principles Chick fil-A stands for,” he said. “Great food. Great service. Great values. God bless Chick fil-A!”

Dylan O'Brien of 'Maze Runner' and 'Teen Wolf' fame said, "BREAKING: Lindsey Graham vows to die on homophobic hill". Fred Wellman of The Lincoln Project tweeted: "Hey @LindseyGrahamSC this is more important than marketing a damn chicken sandwich chain! Do your damn job."
