Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told the Wall Street Journal on Monday that if he chooses to run for President, “pro-Israel funding” may cause him to assemble “the first all-Jewish cabinet” in America.

“If I put together a finance team that will make me financially competitive enough to stay in this thing…I may have the first all-Jewish cabinet in America because of the pro-Israel funding,” Graham reportedly said, chuckling.

“Bottom line is, I’ve got a lot of support from the pro-Israel funding,” he added.

The New York Times reported earlier this month on a recent surge of pro-Israel donations within the GOP, while in January Gallup reported on evidence that Jewish voters are turning toward the Republican Party.
