South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) tweeted Monday that a plane he was taking to Washington, D.C. had to make an emergency landing.

Graham was flying from Greenville, S.C. to Washington when the incident occurred:

According to Greenville Online, the flight took off from the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport at 2:37 p.m. and landed at the same airport without incident at 3:06 p.m.

Because of the incident, Graham missed the Senate vote to confirm Janet Yellen as the first woman to head the Federal Reserve.
