2016 Presidential Candidate Lindsey Graham

Oct 8, 2015

Our guest today, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham likes to say that his hard-scrabble story is 'America's story.' Graham was first elected to the U.S. House in 1994, in what was then called the Republican revolution. He went on to serve six years there, and is now in the midst of his third U.S. Senate term. Graham has made a name for himself over the years as a hawk on foreign policy, and as a politician who can find middle ground with Democrats on issues like campaign finance and immigration. But now, as he runs for president, Graham's experience in Washington doesn't seem to be what Republican voters are seeking. Current polls show three DC outsider candidates - Trump, Carson, and Fiorina - way ahead of longtime politicians like Lindsey Graham.
