“At Aiken event where they only let Newt speak. Half the crowd is almost asleep. At least as a surrogate I can keep the people awake!!” Griff tweeted Tuesday night. “I haven’t been this bored since Microeconomic Theory 231. It is unbelievable how much better Dad is on the stump.”
Griffin graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2006.
