"I am disappointed that Bob Graham has decided to end his campaign for the Presidency. Bob has been a friend and a colleague for 17 years. His dedication to public service, his tireless commitment to those he represents and his values and love of family brought an important perspective to this campaign that will be missed.
As a Governor, he created jobs while protecting Florida's environment. In the Senate, he has worked tirelessly to help seniors afford the medicine they need and been a leader on national security issues. He will continue to be an important voice on national and international issues and I know he has many more contributions to make for our party and for our country. Teresa and I wish Bob, Adele and his entire family the very best."
