Defense hawk Graham enters Republican race for White House

U.S. Republican presidential candidate Graham arrives onstage to formally announce his campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination in Central, South CarolinaBy Greg Lacour CENTRAL, S.C., (Reuters) – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a defense hawk, entered the race for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination on Monday, putting criticism of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy at the forefront of his White House bid. Graham, 59, is the ninth Republican to declare he is running for the White House in a field that includes better-known Republicans such as U.S. Senators Ted Cruz of Texas and Marco Rubio of Florida. A fierce critic of Obama’s nuclear negotiations with Iran, Graham was one of 47 Republican senators who signed a letter of warning in March to the leadership in Tehran, a highly unusual intervention into U.S. foreign policymaking.
