A top official in the George W. Bush administration has become the most prominent Republican to endorse Hillary Clinton for president.
Richard Armitage, who was Bush’s deputy secretary of state during his first presidential term, told Politico in an article published Thursday that Trump “doesn’t appear to be a Republican, he doesn’t appear to want to learn about issues. So I’m going to vote for Mrs. Clinton.”
Armitage, who also served under President Ronald Reagan, isn’t the first Republican to throw his support behind Clinton.
Arne Carlson, the Republican former governor of Minnesota, told CityPages on Wednesday that “no human being in history has been more vetted” than Clinton while Trump “has taken campaigning to a new low.”
