At Music Man Square here Wednesday night, Sen. Lindsey Graham touted himself as a "very good commander-in-chief" who would do "whatever it takes" to defeat ISIS if he were to win the presidency in 2016.
"I'm running for president because I'm very much worried about where we're going," said Graham, R-S.C., who entered the presidential race in June.
Graham, who said the best decision he ever made was going into the Air Force, promised to make national defense the highest priority if he were elected president.
"Homegrown terrorism is what keeps me up at night right now," Graham said.
Graham also sounded the alarm about the possibility of ISIS terrorists coming from Iraq or Syria to attack America.
"If we don't defend ourselves over there, they're coming here," Graham said. "[I will do] whatever it takes, as long as it takes to defeat these guys."
But the biggest threat to America, Graham said, is the possibility of Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon. The U.S. and other world powers are currently in negotiations with Iran to contain Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
