Another one bites the dust! For Trump, that is. A former political director for Ronald Reagan is voting for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Frank Lavin, who worked as Reagan’s political director from 1987 to 1989, will not be voting for the Republican candidate for the first time in 40 years. Lavin said, “It might not be entirely clear that Hillary Clinton deserves to win the presidency, but it is thunderingly clear that Donald Trump deserves to lose.”
Alvin continued, “From this premise, I will do something that I have not done in 40 years of voting: I will vote for the Democratic nominee for president.”
“The depressing truth of the Republican nominee is that Donald Trump talks a great game but he is the emperor who wears no clothes.”
In the op-ed for CNN, Lavin slams the GOP nominee, calling him a “bully,” a “bigot” and someone “devoid of grace or magnanimity.”
With his announcement, he joins other Republicans who have said they do not plan to support their party’s nominee.
Rep. Scott Rigell of Virgina has said he plans to support Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. Rep. Richard Hanna of New York became the first sitting GOP lawmaker to say he would vote for Hillary Clinton.
