Score another one for Hillary Clinton!
On Tuesday Clinton added yet another name to the rapidly growing list of major Republican donors she has taken away from GOP nominee Donald Trump, and this time it is former MGM CEO Harry Sloan. Sloan is a mainstay of Republican fundraising, having served on national finance committees for John McCain and Mitt Romney. As the 2016 election got underway, he signed on with John Kasich.
But in a statement, Sloan said he could not support Trump, who he said, “does not embody the values that have made me a lifelong Republican. He is unprepared and temperamentally unfit to be our President. Most of my Republican friends feel the same way. As a businessman, a father, and a conservative it is clear to me that Hillary Clinton is the right choice in this election.”
Sloan continued, “if we had a different Republican presidential candidate this year, I would likely be proudly supporting them.”
Sloan’s support for Clinton isn’t entirely new. On June 30th, he cut Clinton a $33,400 check to her joint fundraising account, according to federal campaign finance records.
