Lindsey Graham 'Testing the Waters' for Presidential Run

The Republican Senator from South Carolina admits that he's considering wading into the 2016 presidential race.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham continued to play coy Sunday morning when asked if he was considering throwing his hat into the presidential ring.

“We're not polling, but we set up a testing-the-waters committee under the IRS code that would allow me to look beyond South Carolina as to whether or not a guy like Lindsey Graham has a viable path,” the senator from South Carolina said.

This comes after Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) jokingly referred to Graham as his “illegitimate son” during a press conference last week and expressed his desire to see his friend run.

While staying non-committal, Graham did take a moment to tout the foreign policy credentials he would bring to a presidential run. “I think the world is falling apart and I've been more right than wrong when it comes to foreign policy. But we’ll see,” he said.
