While Graham strung together a set of forceful debate performances, he was always relegated to the “undercard” debates, which included the lowest-polling candidates and garnered considerably less attention than the main events.
Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican presidential candidate who always seemed to be having the most fun (when he wasn’t calling for World War III), announced on Monday that he would end his White House bid after his peculiar combination of barroom jocularity and extreme hawkishness failed to attract voters.
Graham’s withdrawal from the 2016 race for the Republican presidential nomination on Monday. has opened up some opportunities for his former rivals, notably in his home state of SC.
“I’m going to suspend my campaign”.
“Graham had one good point during his campaign: Whether you’re an evangelical Christian or Caitlyn Jenner – the radical Islamic extremists of ISIS want to kill you all the same”, Angelo said. “I hope you are not, but if you are, I will be there to help you win a war we can’t afford to lose”. “I believe we have made enormous progress in this effort”.
During an interview on CNN, Graham reminded Trump that American troops are serving overseas under hard circumstances.
Amazingly, this is Graham’s first major political defeat. Graham will likely be a highly sought-after endorsement for those still in the race, though he’s given no indication of who he would back.
Graham is the fourth candidate to drop out so far, but that hasn’t yet dented the strong numbers of the anti-establishment figures leading the pack.
Graham was not afraid to attack other candidates for what he considered a weak plan to combat terrorism. He said that “While we have run a campaign that has made a real difference, I have concluded this is not my time”.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) blames the GOP’s two-tiered debate system for hurting his presidential candidacy.
Graham’s departure could trigger a winnowing of the Republican field, with other long shots like former New York Gov. George Pataki – and potentially former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Pennsylvania Sen.
Graham’s campaign suspension comes after former Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal withdrew earlier in the year.
