In seeking to be the first bachelor elected president in more than 130 years, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) appears to have found a solution for finding a first lady.

“I’ve got a lot of friends. We’ll have a rotating first lady,” Graham, who has never married, recently told the Daily Mail Online.

During the interview, Graham also said his sister, Darline Graham Nordone, could fill the spot. Nordone, who is married and has two children, did play an important role at Graham’s campaign announcement this month by introducing her brother, sharing how he helped take care of her after the two lost both of their parents at a young age.

Even though only two bachelors have ever been elected president, Graham told The Huffington Post on Saturday he does not think being single will affect his White House bid.

“I’ve got a wonderful, supportive family. And the last time I checked, I didn't see a sign on the White House that said ‘single people need not apply,’” Graham said.

Graham is currently polling at the bottom of the 2016 Republican presidential field, according to HuffPost Pollster.
