The government has been shut down now for 18 days.
As you all probably know by now, the Clemson Tigers defeated the Alabama Crimson Tide on Monday night to capture their third NCAA football National Title, and their second in three years. It was a blowout victory with a score of 44-16 and had all of South Carolina buzzing. The win even caught the eye of Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is also from South Carolina. The Senator is now saying the Tigers win could potentially end the government shutdown.
In an interview with TMZ, Sen. Graham says "Remember that to be successful you have to be a team .. and so I'm gonna take that attitude about trying to bring the Congress together."
"There's a deal to be had ... secure that border with a wall component, help the Dream Act population [and others] who have been here for decades who are about to lose their legal status and do some legal reforms and call it a day," Sen. Graham continued. "There's a deal to be had so let's go get it ... And after the football game, I'm in a good mood, so if you're a Democrat, give me a call."
The government has been shut down now for 18 days and has left thousands of government workers without pay.
