You know it was just a matter of time really. The Republican presidential field simply has to narrow, and the process has begun.
In a move that will probably surprise exactly no one, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham announced today via a conference call to supporters that he would be dropping out of the race.
As Politico reports, “His announcement came on the same day as the deadline hit for him to remove his name from the South Carolina primary ballot, a date that had been closely watched amid speculation that the low-polling Graham would want to avoid a potentially poor performance in his own state’s contest.
“I was hoping not to have to make this call, but I think the time has come for me to suspend my campaign,” he said as he opened the call.
