Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) will announce his expected bid for the White House on June 1, he told “CBS This Morning.” Graham will make the announcement from central South Carolina, which hosts a key early primary. The hawkish senator will be seen as a long-shot for the White House, but could have a big influence in the GOP’s discussion on foreign policy and national security. “I’m running because of what you see on television, I’m running because I think the world is falling apart,” Graham said. “I’ve been more right than wrong on foreign policy.” The hawkish lawmaker has for months signaled that…

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) predicted Thursday Republicans will lose the 2016 presidential election without major immigration reform, saying the party is struggling to win minority voters. “The only way we lose this election is if we beat ourselves and that is very possible, but we are getting creamed with non-white voters,” Graham, a likely 2016 presidential contender, told host Susan Page on USA Today’s “Capital Download.” “We’ll lose,” he said, if the party doesn’t improve its prospects with minorities. “I mean, we’ve got a big hole we’ve dug with Hispanics,” he added. “We’ve gone from 44 percent of the Hispanic vote [in…

Jobless rate falls to 7-year low

Getty Images

The U.S. economy added 223,000 jobs in April, bringing the jobless rate to a seven-year low after slow growth in the first three months of 2015. The strong figures bolster hopes that the economic recovery is not ending, and come as the White House is pushing Democrats to support President Obama’s trade agenda. The unemployment rate fell one-tenth of a point to 5.4 percent last month, the lowest since May 2008, even as March’s already dismal numbers were revised down by 41,000 jobs, a sign that the economy might have contracted in the first quarter after an anemic 0.2 percent…
