Graham Vows to Continue His Presidential Campaign

“Hell no, I’m not gonna drop out,” Lindsey Graham proclaimed Tuesday on Twitter.

The South Carolina senator disputed reports that he will soon end his presidential bid. He has received no support in the last five national polls of Republican voters, according to Newsmax. He ranks last among the 15 GOP candidates who remain in the race.

“What’s keeping you in?” Whoopi Goldberg asked Graham on ABC’s “The View.” He responded: “I think I would be a commander in chief worthy of the sacrifice of the 1 percent who are taking care of all of us. … I think I would be a commander in chief that would keep us safe.”

Known as one of the Senate’s leading military “hawks,” Graham has called for a massive deployment of U.S. ground troops to fight ISIS in Iraq and Syria. “If I get to be commander in chief, we’re gonna go over and kill as many of these bastards as we can before they come here,” he said. “When it comes to defending our country, experience is a good thing, and I’ve got plenty of it.”

Though his message has failed to resonate with voters, Graham vowed to continue campaigning. “I have been in the military most of my life. You don’t drop out. You don’t get a pass,” he said.
