MANCHESTER - At an event held at the Queen City VFW, Arizona Sen. John McCain - a two-time New Hampshire primary winner and former U.S. presidential candidate - officially announced his support for presidential hopeful Sen. Lindsey Graham.
“America needs a leader who can hit the ground running," McCain said about Graham. "And fight this ISIS threat – which is a direct threat to the United States of America and its citizens.”
Graham, from South Carolina, has spoken publicly in the past about his hope to receive McCain's support.
At Saturday's town hall, Graham and McCain spent much of their discussion on national security and securing borders.
Graham told the crowd that as president, he would take care of unfinished business in the Middle East.
“So we’re going to send some soldiers back to Iraq, with a sound strategy, to go after these guys. Kill their leadership," Graham said.
The Republican senator also said that he is working hard to earn support in New Hampshire, as he hopes to increase his position in the polls.
McCain, looking back on his success in the Granite State, said he would advise Graham to personalize his approach - by shaking hands, and answering direct questions from voters.
"By Senator Graham’s performance today, you can see why he is going to be competitive," McCain said. "And I predict he can win New Hampshire.”
