South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham added to the Republican Party’s logistical challenges as he formally launched his 2016 presidential campaign — becoming the ninth GOP primary candidate, with more than a half-dozen others still weighing a bid of their own. Graham joins an already-crowded Republican field, with more candidates expected to declare later this month. Graham, a retired Air Force colonel, enters the race just as a fierce battle over national security rages in the Senate.

 

 

  • The hawkish lawmaker made clear he will strive to make national security a centerpiece of his campaign, and the presidential race as a whole.
  • a noted defense hawk – stands in sharp contrast to fellow 2016 hopeful Sen. Rand Paul , who spent Sunday night railing against the anti-terror PATRIOT act and just last month declared that GOP hawks have contributed to the rise of ISIS.
  • Yet in the early days of the 2016 campaign for president, Graham has already gone further than most of his rivals for the GOP nomination in saying how he would tackle such problems, while acknowledging the potential costs of his strategy.
