Republican Lindsey Graham ends his 2016 presidential campaign

Republican Lindsey Graham ends his 2016 presidential campaign

And he has now made the decision to suspend his campaign. 

As a response, Graham made a YouTube video on ways to smash your phone.

The process, however, is not presently built to reward people like Graham, a pragmatic conservative without the fire-breathing rhetoric or matinee idol good looks that tend to distinguish candidates in this day and age.

A new CBS News poll showed Graham at just 1 percent in sc, and he may have been looking to avoid an embarrassing loss in his home state. "All I can say is that we need to fix immigration".

State party officials, meanwhile, told Business Insider that loyalty to Graham ran deep in the state. "I just don't see a way for me to get on the main [debate] stage in time to make a difference". He stated from the outset of his campaign that more USA troops are needed, adding that "American soldiers will die in Iraq and eventually in Syria to protect our homeland".

Moore also predicted that Graham could still "have a major impact" on the state's coming Republican presidential primary.

Senator McCain released a statement Monday about Graham.

In October, he offered this assessment of the crowded Republican field, talking first about Ben Carson, then about Trump: "On our side, you've got the No. 2 guy tried to kill someone at 14". But Graham has given no indication of who he would support.

When he filed his candidacy for the primary in November, Graham wondered if the reliance on national polls for debate standing will mean that 2016 will be the final meaningful first-in-the-nation primary for New Hampshire. Today's candidate to drop was Lindsay Graham. Matt Moore, the chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party, confirmed that Graham was off the ballot within 40 minutes of the announcement going public.

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.

McCain's endorsement, however, might pull some weight in New Hampshire, after the state supported him in not only his 2000 run for president against George W. Bush, but also in the 2008 race, which resulted in his nomination.

Graham, a former military lawyer with decades of experience in government, often seemed dumbfounded by the circus like atmosphere of the 2016 race.
