Senator Graham says he will run for president; formal announcement coming in June

(WCSC) -

Despite saying he plans to make an official announcement in June regarding a possible run for the White House, Senator Lindsey Graham accidentally let the cat out of the bag on "CBS This Morning." 

"I'm running because of what you see on television," the South Carolina congressman said during his appearance on the show Monday morning. "It's my ability in my own mind to be a good commander in chief."

The slip came moments after Graham said he would make an official announcement regarding his plans for a possible White House run on June 1 in Central, South Carolina. 

The congressman alerted his followers on social media Sunday evening that a big announcement is on the way regarding his plans for 2016. Graham said he will break the news on "CBS This Morning" at 8 a.m.

Graham has hinted at a run for president in recent months, even saying he was about 90 percent sure on what he would do. Despite the talks, he he not made anything official yet.
