BREAKING: GOP Presidential Candidate Drops Out of Race

Senator Lindsey Graham is bowing out of the 2016 presidential race, he told supporters Monday during a conference call…and then there were…12.

‘I was hoping not to have to make this call,’ Graham said, according to a person who listened in. ‘But I think the time has come for me to suspend my campaign.’

Graham complained about being relegated to the so-called ‘undercard’ debate stage, where he has been limited to crossing swords with other bottom-tier candidates like former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former New York Gov. George Pataki.

‘I just don’t see how we [can] grow the campaign without getting on the main stage,’ he added, citing a failure to ‘get our voice on equal footing with others.’

‘This second-tier debate process has been difficult for us. I think we’ve done well in the debates, it’s just hard to break through, because the buzz doesn’t last very long.’

In an interview with CNN, Graham fought back tears and said: ‘I’ve hit a wall here.’

But he predicted that ‘the nominee of our party is going to adopt my plan when it comes time to articulate how to destroy ISIL.’

And to the Democrats’ front-runner, he extended a rare olive branch.

‘Hillary, if you get to be president, I’ll help you where I can,’ he said. ‘I hope you’re not. But if you are, I’ll be there to help you win a war we can’t afford to lose.’

This election is so important…if Hillary does win, I couldn’t support her as he says he could. That would be supporting the destruction of America, no?
