“It’s hard to believe that in a nation of more than 300 million Americans Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will be our choices for president,” Graham said in a statement released by his Senate office.
Graham said he’d “absolutely” not support Clinton, the overwhelming favorite for the Democratic nomination, saying she’d represent President Obama’s “third term.”
“I also cannot in good conscience support Donald Trump because I do not believe he is a reliable Republican conservative nor has he displayed the judgment and temperament to serve as commander in chief,” said Graham, who ran for president against Trump during the GOP primary.
Graham said after the November election he’d work with the next president to “deal with the many challenges facing our nation.”
