President Donald Trump appears to have a stranglehold on major endorsements from top Republicans heading into the 2020 presidential election.
At least that’s what we thought…
Now in a move nobody saw coming, a group of high-powered Republicans are joining forces to endorse JOE BIDEN for president!
According to a report from The Daily Caller, hundreds of officials that worked under former President George W. Bush will endorse Biden in the upcoming presidential election.
According to Reuters, the group formed a super PAC last Wednesday, called “43 Alumni For Biden,” which includes former cabinet secretaries and executive branch officials.
“Whether you worked in the earliest days of the 43rd Administration or sprinted to the finish in January 2009, you know a thing or two about serving the grand ideals and exceptional people of our country,” the super PAC writes on its front page. “Together we saw compassion in action, strength on display and the steady leadership of a true statesmen who inspired us to meet some of America’s greatest challenges.”
The folks in the pro-Biden group include…
Jennifer Millikin, who worked on Bush’s 2000 and 2004 presidential campaigns, and who told Reuters that Trump is a “danger” to the nation. It also lists former Republican National Committee (RNC) officials Kelly Ganzberger, Michael Turk and Serenety Hanley among its organizing committee members.
According to The Daily Caller report, the group went on to state that while they still have political differences with Biden, they are endorsing him because “our democracy is at stake.”
“Bound by our shared work experience and a belief in a brighter tomorrow, we endorse Joe Biden for President,” they write. “Political differences may remain among us, but we look forward to a time when civil, honest and robust policy discussions are the order of the day.”
Does this mean that Bush will also endorse Biden?
According to the report, a spokesman for Bush suggested in June that the 43rd president has not made up his mind on how he will vote in November. Some former Bush administration officials, including former Secretary of State Colin Powell have thrown their support behind Biden.
