Lindsey Graham joins presidential primary race

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham announced his bid for the Republican presidential nomination from his childhood town on Monday morning. Much of Graham's announcement focused on his foreign policy record and international experience, and harkened back to successes of the Reagan administration. Graham is a prominent Senate voice in seeking a more muscular foreign policy. He wants to send 10,000 more U.S. troops to Iraq to stabilize a world that he's characterized as "falling apart." In his announcement Graham topped it off with the typical political crowd pleaser by saying "It is time for America to come back, and come back we will."
