Carlos Gutierrez, former secretary of commerce under President George W. Bush, has endorsed Hillary Clinton, adding to a number of Republicans who are siding with the other side of the aisle in this election.
“I actually think Hillary Clinton has the experience, she’s been around, she knows how the system works. I think she’d make a darn good president,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “I would have preferred Jeb Bush, but I think Hillary is a great choice. I am afraid of what Donald Trump would do to this country.”
Several Republican members of Congress, including Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Mark Kirk of Illinois, and Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Richard Hanna of New York and Scott Rigell of Virginia aren’t backing Trump. Also, dozens of Republican national security officials recently signed a letter saying Trump would “risk our country’s national security and well-being.”
I love stories like this one, because they give me hope that at some time in the future perhaps the Republican party will return to sanity and we will once again start getting candidates that we might disagree with ideologically, but who are not out of their fucking minds.
Once Trump loses I have to imagine that the GOP will have a "come to Jesus moment" where they finally take a long serious look at themselves and ask "How in the hell did we end up here?"
