South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham ended his presidential campaign this morning. A well-known voice in Republican foreign policy debates, and a frequent visitor to New Hampshire, Graham failed to catch on with voters here. NHPR’s Senior Editor for Politics Dan Barrick spoke with All Things Considered Host Peter Biello, to look back on Graham’s short-lived White House bid.

As presidential candidates flock to New Hampshire every four years, it's our duty as local reporters to fire questions at them and hold them accountable.

But while covering a recent visit from South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, it wasn't questions I was firing -- it was a rifle, my first time shooting a gun. And my coach that day? The candidate himself.

Our guest today, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham likes to say that his hard-scrabble story is 'America's story.' Graham was first elected to the U.S. House in 1994, in what was then called the Republican revolution. He went on to serve six years there, and is now in the midst of his third U.S. Senate term. Graham has made a name for himself over the years as a hawk on foreign policy, and as a politician who can find middle ground with Democrats on issues like campaign finance and immigration.
