Graham said he had not yet done any polling to see if he would have a shot, but argued that his foreign policy stances have proven his worth.

“I think the world is falling apart, and I’ve been more right than wrong when it comes to foreign policy,” he said. “But we’ll see.”

Graham has been a fierce critic of President Obama’s foreign policy, arguing the U.S. pulled out of Iraq too quickly and has failed to support rebels in Syria against Bashar Assad. He said Sunday that the president’s policies are based on campaign promises, and are putting lives at risk.
