( – On Thursday, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) intensified his opposition to a New York state bill that would make it a requirement for new restaurants that open on highway rest stops to remain open seven days a week. Specifically, Graham has pointed out that this new bill would have really affected Chick-fil-A, which is known for always closing on Sundays in observance of the Sabbath. As part of their company policy, they note that adhering to this closure allows their employees to worship in any capacity that they choose.

During an interview on “Fox & Friends,” Graham stated that he was not planning on quitting this fight. As he argued, while conservatives usually stay out of others’ business and remain tolerant, this was one of those times that they needed to fight back. This is a point that he reiterated in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, where he expressed his opposition to the bill.

Graham stated in the interview that he believed the entire bill to be a publicity stunt. He added that those people in New York who were pushing for the elimination of the one-free day and who were trying to change how a company was operating were in “for one hell of a fight.”

Last week, Graham first attacked the state’s bill through a post on X where he declared, “This is war.” He further threatened that he would introduce legislation that would make cities that force fast food businesses to operate on Sundays ineligible to receive federal funds.
