Scott Conroy at RCP is one the first to take the Lindsey Graham campaign seriously. Running as a McCain Republican, with a strong emphasis on hawkish foreign policy, Graham sees himself as able to come off a win in New Hampshire with a second win in South Carolina and emerge from the pack. (Even though only 34 percent of South Carolina Republicans say they want him to run for president.)

Conroy writes:

Graham may be a lifelong bachelor, but he has an ironclad political partner in McCain.

“I formally endorse him,” McCain told reporters shortly after Graham launched his exploratory committee. “He has my all-out complete support. That’s not just friendship. It’s got to do with national security and what I believe are grave threats to this nation.”
