Lindsey Graham launches 2016 bid

Posted:

CENTRAL, S.C. (AP) -- Lindsey Graham says radical Islam is "running wild" -- in a world that is also threatened by Iran's nuclear ambitions.

The South Carolina senator became the latest Republican to jump into the 2016 presidential race today. He says he has more national security experience than any other candidate -- and specifically included Hillary Rodham Clinton among them.

Graham told supporters: "I want to be president to defeat the enemies that are trying to kill us."

Graham is a prominent Senate voice in seeking a more muscular foreign policy. He wants 10,000 more U.S. troops in Iraq to stabilize a world that he's characterized as "falling apart."
