Arizona Sen. John McCain released a statement shortly after Graham's announcement

"Republicans lost our most qualified, thoughtful, fearless and honest presidential candidate, not to mention the candidate with the best (and it seemed sometimes the only) sense of humor," said McCain.

"As sorry as I am to see Lindsey's candidacy end, I understand his reasons, and I'm as proud of him as I've ever been for his exemplary service to our party and our country," the statement continued.
