• Lindsey Graham Suspends Presidential Campaign As Support Remains Below 1%

    Sen. Lindsey Graham announced in a YouTube video Monday that he has suspended his presidential campaign.

    “Today, I’m suspending my campaign for president,” Graham said in the short video. “I want to thank everyone who has taken this journey with me. You have honored me with your support. I believe we have run a campaign you can be proud of. We put forth bold and practical solutions to real problems.”

    “Four months ago at the very first debate, I said that any candidate who did not understand that we need more troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria to defeat ISIL was not ready to be Commander in Chief,” he continued. “At the time, no one stepped forward to join me. Today, most of my fellow candidates have come to recognize this is what’s needed to secure our homeland.”

    “While we have run a campaign that has made a real difference, I have concluded this is not my time,”he added:

    The South Carolina pro-amnesty senator had been largely critical of Republican frontrunner Donald Trump during his campaign.

    “He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot,” Graham said on CNN following Trump’s proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United State. “You know you how you make America great again? You tell Donald Trump to go to hell.”
