Courtesy of HuffPo:the GOP is going to nominate for President a guy who reads the National Enquirer and thinks it's on the level. I'm with her.— Mark Salter (@MarkSalter55) May 3, 2016
Mark Salter, who served as chief of staff to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and worked as an adviser on both of McCain’s presidential campaigns, says he’ll be supporting Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump this fall.
Salter, known as one of McCain’s closest confidants, tweeted Tuesday that he’s “with her,” a nod to Clinton’s campaign slogan.
The tweet came after Trump cited a National Enquirer story accusing Ted Cruz’s father, Rafael Cruz, of playing a role in John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Cruz’s campaign has dismissed the story as “garbage.”
I would not be at all surprised to learn that John McCain ends up voting or Hillary as well, along with a whole lot of Republicans who simply cannot imagine the stubby fingered vulgarian sitting in the Oval Office.
I am still not going to predict a blowout for Hillary in the general because I don't want Democrats to get cocky, but I will say that if it were to happen I would not be even a little surprised.
