TRABUCO CANYON, CA – Shawn Collins announced today that he has earned the endorsement of U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.).

“I am proud to support Shawn Collins for Congress in California’s 45th district,” said Senator Graham.“Shawn is the type of leader we need in the House of Representatives and in the Republican Party. As a fellow veteran, I know firsthand the approach that veterans take to solving our nation’s problems. Shawn will be a conservative who gets things done and puts our country first – not himself or either political party.”

Senator Graham has served in the United States Senate since 2003. Prior to that, he served as Congressman for South Carolina’s 3rd district. He is a veteran of the United States Air Force and Air Force Reserves, and he is considered one of the leading conservative voices in the nation on foreign policy and national security matters.

“It is an honor to receive Senator Graham’s endorsement today. As an Afghanistan combat veteran, I have the ultimate respect for the way he has advocated for our troops and always stood by our side,” added Collins. “Since announcing my candidacy for Congress, I have been overwhelmed by the support my campaign has received. I look forward to continuing to spread my positive message of unity and integrity to the people of California’s 45th district.”


Shawn Collins is a conservative Navy veteran and active Navy Reservist. A husband and father, Shawn is running for Congress in California’s 45th District to serve our country and to continue his fight to help others achieve the American Dream.

Having served in Afghanistan, Shawn has spent his life fighting for the Constitution he swore to uphold and defend. He will take that same fighting spirit to the halls of Congress.
