AUGUSTA, GA (WRDW/WAGT) -- As America woke up to the news of a Iranian general killed by U.S. forces and word of "harsh" retaliations from Iran, two-state officials are responding.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, a leading GOP voice on foreign policy, praised President Donald J. Trump's leadership in the operation that took out Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani.

Fellow South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott also called the response "calculated and proportional."

Georgia Sen. David Perdue also took to Twitter to applaud the operation.
