The presidential campaign of Lindsey Graham has come to an end after a valiant fight. His decision arrives after Graham slogged through a stream of “early debates,” which meant he rarely got to play at the GOP’s version of the big kids’ table. Those mini-debates can’t be easy to endure, but Graham still had fun after Donald Trump retaliated against the lesser candidate by giving out Graham’s phone number during a campaign speech. Graham’s offense, of course, was that he branded Trump a “jackass” for his immigration stances.
Graham, who never rose above a 1% approval rating, did make one promise (“to drink more”) that stood out among a slew of dull fellow candidates.
