Candidate Graham announces bid
U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham is going back to his childhood roots to make his bid for the GOP presidential nomination official. Graham will make a formal announcement at 10:30 a.m. on Main Street in Central, S.C., where he grew up, living with his parents in a back room of the family business.
Graham’s announcement makes him the ninth Republican candidate to seek the nomination. He’s widely seen as a long shot, but Graham has said he sees a path forward for him as long as national security and terrorism are at the top of voters’ minds.
