Conservative writer William Kristol is encouraging GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham to resume his suspended presidential campaign, arguing "the way things are going, he might win."

The Weekly Standard founder and editor — and vocal Donald Trump critic — has so far failed to prod National Review writer, constitutional lawyer, and Iraq war veteran David French to launch an independent bid as a conservative alternative to the GOP presumptive nominee, but the South Carolina senator's move to back away from his Trump endorsement seemed to pique Kristol's interest.

Kristol on Tuesday tweeted it'd be "easier" if Graham just resume his own presidential campaign.


Earlier, Graham had railed at Trump's comments about Hispanic judge Gonzalo Curiel's oversight of lawsuits involving Trump University, telling the New York Times his fellow Republicans ought to consider rescinding their endorsements of Trump.

Then in a later interview with MSNBC, Graham said he "just can't" support Trump, and would focus on helping GOP candidates in House and Senate races. 

Kristol also has also encouraged 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney and former GOP presidential primary candidate Carly Fiorina to run against Trump and Hillary Clinton, the Daily Caller notes
