Graham, Cruz and Santorum Add Their Names to N.H. Primary Ballot

Three more Republicans have joined the New Hampshire primary ballot. Lindsey Graham, Ted Cruz and Rick Santorum made it official Thursday morning after passing in the required paperwork and paying the $1,000 filing fee.

For Santorum, this was his second time doing so. He also ran in the 2012 presidential primary. 

But for Graham, filing in New Hampshire was quite an emotional moment. 

“To grow up in a small town in South Carolina, neither one of your parents have graduated from high school -- to come file for the presidency of the United States has been an incredible experience,” Graham told reporters.

And Texas Sen. Ted Cruz made sure to give praise to the New Hampshire primary process.

“The wonderful thing about this state is how real and personal you take politics. You'll treat politics like we treat football in Texas,” Cruz said.

On Friday Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is expected to file.
