Tea PartyEdit

The Tea Party movement hates Graham because he thinks the Republican position on Global warming, Immigration reform and some other hot button topics is wrong. Graham expects the Tea Party to "die out" since he feels "they can never come up with a coherent vision for governing the country." [1] [2]

Graham is considered a RINO.

2016 raceEdit

On May 18, 2015, Graham informally announced his candidacy for President of the United States [3] which was followed by a formal announcement on June 21, 2015, in his hometown of Central, South Carolina.[4].During his campain Graham has said barrzare things & had many strange things happen to him. One time in July of 2015 Donald Trump handed out his phone number to the world. Trump would later say that He "did it for fun."[5] Lindsay Graham says that he wishes that George W. Bush was president again & that he misses him.[6] Graham dropped out of the race on December 21 2015.[7]

EndorsementEdit

Graham is supported Jeb Bush's campaign for president in 2016.[8][9]

After Jeb Bush dropped out Graham said he'd back whoever is nominated but he is having second thoughts. Graham compared Donald Trump to Michael Moore because of some 9/11 Comments. Trump blamed George W. Bush for not keeping American people safe during 9/11. Trump also accused Bush of Lying over WMD's when Bush went to war with Iraq. If Trump gets the nomination Graham may still oppose him. [10] Why??? Because Trump told the truth about Dubya?
