Republican South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, the hawkish conservative and vocal critic of President Obama’s foreign policies, on Sunday said he would give a presidential run “a try.”

“I don’t know yet, but I’m going to give it a try,” Graham said on ABC’s “This Week” when asked whether he could win the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

“I think I can win South Carolina,” he added. “I wouldn’t be talking to you. First step into Iowa was very positive. The way a guy like me would win is to offer a form of conservatism that would be able to grow the party and be ready to be commander in chief on Day 1.”

Graham recently tested the presidential waters by traveling to Iowa, home of the first-in-the-nation caucuses.
