2016 Candidates Respond to Lindsey Graham’s Withdrawal From Race on Twitter
Lindsey Graham‘s announcement to withdraw from the presidential race this morning has been the latest shake-up in the 2016 run for the White House. While Graham has had difficulty attracting widespread support, his feuds with GOP frontrunner Donald Trump have seen a good deal of media circulation, and his competition have started giving their thoughts about Graham’s decision on Twitter:

While none of the Democratic candidates have issued a personal response yet, Hillary Clinton retweeted the sentiments of her press secretary upon the matter:
With Graham out, there’s no one left in GOP field who clearly supports comprehensive immigration reform plan that has a path to citizenship

Graham’s campaign suspension is still a developing story, and we’ll add updates as the other candidates weigh in with their thoughts.
