South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham says he wants Caitlyn Jenner's vote.

Graham, who last week announced his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, spoke Sunday to CNN from the Iowa campaign trail.

Olympian Bruce Jenner came out as a transgender woman during an April interview with ABC News' Diane Sawyer. Caitlyn Jenner's debut last week on the cover of Vanity Fair made her America's most recognizable transgender woman.

When correspondent Dana Bash noted comments from conservative radio host Steve Deace calling for the Republican Party to oppose transgender people, Graham chimed in: “If Caitlyn Jenner wants to be safe and have a prosperous economy, vote for me.”

“I'm into addition,” he continued. “I haven't walked in her shoes. I don't have all the answers to the mysteries of life. I can only imagine the torment that Bruce Jenner went through. I hope he's – I hope she has found peace. I'm a pro-life, traditional marriage kind of guy. But I'm running to be president of the United States. If Caitlyn Jenner wants to be a Republican, she is welcome in my party.”

In her interview with Sawyer, Jenner said she was a Republican.

“Yeah. Is that a bad thing? I believe in the Constitution,” Jenner responded when Sawyer asked if she was a Republican.
