Like many voters, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) considers both presidential candidates unacceptable options for president.
Monday during a debate against Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, who vying for his senate seat, McCain said, "I think I might write-in Lindsey Graham."
"He's an old, good friend of mine and a lot of people like him," McCain added. "The fact is I can't, seriously, I cannot vote for either one."
McCain withdrew his support of Trump over the weekend after a recording of the Republican presidential nominee making vulgar comments about women was leaked.
It is so nice that the shackles have been taken off me and I can now fight for America the way I want to.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
Donald Trump tweeted this on Tuesday, continuing the battle between him and GOP leadership.
In the wake of Trump's comments bragging about groping women released on Friday, many top Republican leaders have either rescinded their endorsements or reduced their commitments to his campaign.
Paul Ryan held a conference call in which he said he would not defend Trump, but didn't officially un-endorse Trump.
That only incensed Trump, even after Republican National Committee chairman Reince Preibus said he would stand behind the GOP nominee for president.
Our very weak and ineffective leader, Paul Ryan, had a bad conference call where his members went wild at his disloyalty.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
Trump has not held back in his criticism of Ryan.
Despite winning the second debate in a landslide (every poll), it is hard to do well when Paul Ryan and others give zero support!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
He accused Ryan "and others" of giving "zero support."
The very foul mouthed Sen. John McCain begged for my support during his primary (I gave, he won), then dropped me over locker room remarks!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
Apparently Sen. John McCain was included in those "others."
Disloyal R's are far more difficult than Crooked Hillary. They come at you from all sides. They don’t know how to win - I will teach them!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
"I will teach them!"
With the exception of cheating Bernie out of the nom the Dems have always proven to be far more loyal to each other than the Republicans!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 11, 2016
Trump even gave a backhanded compliment to the Democratic Party.
WATCH | His running mate, Mike Pence, insisted he was not thinking of abandoning the campaign, even though Trump has openly disagreed with him on certain policy positions, such as the war in Syria. Trump affirmed Pence's loyalty on Monday.
WATCH | The infighting could be bad news for the Republican Party's efforts to hold on to its House and Senate majorities.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, (D-N.Y.) said the party was in "self-preservation mode" and the Democrats could take even more seats than they won in 2008.
