Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham announced Monday that he is ending his campaign for president. In a video posted on YouTube, the South Carolina Senator said he was “honored” by the support he’s received so far and ran a “problem solver’s campaign” during his time in the race. “I got into this race to put forward a plan to win a war we cannot afford to lose and to turn back the tide of isolationism that was rising in our party,” he said. “I believe we made enormous progress in this effort.”

Graham launched his campaign in June and has focused on national security. Although he is no longer running, Graham said he would continue his commitment to “achieving security through strength.”
