Graham: Caitlyn Jenner 'welcome' in the Republican Party, as his running mate?

The Hill reports:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) says Caitlyn Jenner is welcome in the Republican Party.

In an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" that aired Sunday, the presidential candidate commented on Jenner, formerly Bruce, who recently made her debut after completing a gender transition.

"If Caitlyn Jenner wants to be safe and have a prosperous economy, vote for me. I'm into addition. I haven't walked in her 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," Graham said.

"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," he added. As Bruce, Jenner had identified himself as a Republican.

Asked if the GOP should reach out to transgender Americans, Graham said "We're all in this together." "

It appears Graham has picked his running mate: Graham-Jenner 2016?
