Lindsey Graham: Romney Very ‘Generous’ With His Taxes

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) dodged a question Sunday about whether Harry Reid should apologize to Mitt Romney in the wake of the Republican candidate release of more tax data on Friday.

“Nobody’s going to vote based on Mitt Romney’s tax returns,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” before praising Romney for giving some 30 percent of his earnings to charity in 2011.

“I’m sort of amazed at the generosity of the Romneys,” he said. “And he has paid his taxes lawfully.”
