South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham told reporters Tuesday that he would support former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's nomination for secretary of state by President-elect Donald Trump.

"He has dealt with the unimaginable, which was 9/11," the three-term Republican said on Capitol Hill, The Independent Journal Review reports. "He’s a loyal supporter of President Trump and he should be rewarded in my view."

Further, Graham is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — and "no matter who [Trump] picks, they’re gonna come see me because I fund it.

"And I can work with Rudy," he said.

Graham also voiced backing for former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton, who served under former President George W. Bush.

"John Bolton and I‘ve been friends for 20 years," he said. "If he picks John Bolton, then I would support John Bolton.

"If he picks Rudy, I’d support Rudy because I think both of them are competent and capable."

Graham also noted that Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said he opposed both Giuliani and Bolton as the nation's top diplomat.

"They see the world pretty much like I do — and the fact that Rand Paul doesn’t like either one of them helps me reach my decision."
