    Sen. Lindsey Graham announced he will host a fundraiser for Sen. Ted Cruz in an effort to derail Donald Trump from securing the Republican nomination, NBC News reported.

    In an interview with CNN, Graham said Cruz is strategically the best alternative to stop Trump. He said he’s supporting the candidate he believes is the most electable.

    "John Kasich, I think, is the most viable general election candidate. I don't see how John gets through the primary," he said.

    Graham will host a pro-Israel fundraiser on Monday and will continue to rally support for Cruz.
