Lindsey Graham drops out of 2016 presidential race



U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina announced today that he is dropping out of the 2016 presidential race.

Graham had lagged behind in polls in the Republican field for months and may best be remembered for his good sense of humor -- including when he made a video of himself destroying his cell phone after Donald Trump gave out his number.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush tweeted: "Nobody is more clear-eyed about ISIS than my friend @GrahamBlog. As he leaves the race I hope our party & country listen to his counsel"
