Sen. Lindsey Graham said Wednesday that he is not voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton in the November presidential election and would instead support those Republicans seeking House and Senate seats.

"I probably won't vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump," the South Carolina Republican, who dropped out of the nomination race in December, told Wolf Blitzer on CNN. "It hurts to not support your party, but he's taking the party in a direction I cannot go on — immigration, foreign policy.

"I hate the fact that I can't support my party nominee. I want to help my House and Senate colleagues, and I'll support them enthusiastically."

He welcomed Sen. Marco Rubio's reversal earlier Wednesday on seeking re-election, saying that the first-term senator has "got a bright future."

Graham also slammed Democrats who are staging a sit-in on the floor in trying to force a vote on gun control when they should be focused on battling terrorism.

"I really do believe my Democratic friends are trying to turn this into a gun-control issue when we should be worried about, how did this guy get off the list? Why was he taken off the list?

"What are we doing about home-grown terrorism?"
