Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham Suspends Presidential Campaign

Editor:  Pray for a worthy opponent for Sen. Graham in his next Senate Race as with the other 533 DC races… Just Say’en

Today, I’m suspending my campaign for president. I want to thank everyone who has taken this journey with me. You have honored me with your support,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in a Monday YouTube video message to his supporters, seen above.

Sen. Graham, whose campaign failed to qualify for the main stage on any of the 2016 Republican primary’s presidential debates, has also withdrawn from the South Carolina Republican primary. Ballot Access News notes that Monday was the official deadline for candidates to file a withdrawal from South Carolina’s primary election.

NPR’s Arnie Siepel wrote, “Graham was potentially facing an embarrassing loss in his home state and now [that he has withdrawn from the S.C. primary] has the leverage of endorsing one of his fellow GOP candidates.

I got into this race to put forward a plan to win a war we cannot afford to lose and to turn back the tide of isolationism that was rising in our party. I believe we’ve made enormous progress in this effort,” said Sen. Graham, explaining his objective in running for president.

He added, “Four months ago at the very first debate, I said that any candidate that did not understand that we need more American troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria to defeat ISIL was not ready to be commander-in-chief. At that 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.

Sen. Graham told ABC News that he is not yet ready to announce who he will endorse for president, but said, “There’s lots of talented people in the race: Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush, others.
