Sen. John McCain suggested Monday he might vote for fellow Sen. Lindsey Graham for president rather than Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"I might write in Lindsey Graham," said the former presidential candidate when asked who he’ll vote for in November, The Hill reported.
McCain withdrew his support for Trump on Saturday, following the release of a video showing Trump in 2005 talking about groping women without their consent and his unsuccessful sexual advances towards a married woman.
"... Donald Trump’s behavior this week, concluding with the disclosure of his demeaning comments about women and his boasts about sexual assaults, make it impossible to continue to offer even conditional support for his candidacy," McCain said on Saturday, The Hill reported.
"Cindy, with her strong background in human rights and respect for women fully agrees with me in this," the senator said of his wife.
McCain and Trump have had a contentious relationship for over a year, since the GOP nominee said he didn’t think McCain, a Vietnam veteran who was tortured for years as a prisoner of war, was a war hero because "he was captured."
However, McCain eventually supported Trump in his campaign for the White House. He was asked on Monday why he waited until now to retract his endorsement.
Trump fired back on Twitter:
