GOP Congressman: 'I Will Vote For Mrs. Clinton'

A sitting Republican Congressman has announced his support for Hillary Clinton for the President of the United States and bashed her opponent, Donald Trump.

One Republican serving in the United States Congress is finally opening his eyes to see who is best suited to be the next president and chooses Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton won her first endorsement from a current Republican member of Congress this week, proving that a Republican will indeed cross-over and vote for a Democratic nominee, according to Mic.

Republican Rep. Richard Hanna wrote in an op-ed letter to about Donald Trump saying, “For me, it’s not enough to simply denounce her comments. He is unfit to serve our party and cannot lead this country.”

Hanna has been a #NeverTrump advocate since March and was not a fan of Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, either.

“I was the first one in our caucus to say I couldn’t vote for either one of them. I want someone to be president that my children can look up to,” he said to

Hanna doesn't agree with all of Clinton’s views, yet he still believes in her and has hope that she will be a great leader.

“While I disagree with her on many issues, I will vote for Mrs. Clinton,” he wrote. “I will be hopeful and resolute in my belief that being a good American who loves his country is far more important than parties or winning and losing. I trust she can lead.”

Several former Republicans have also hopped on the #ImWithHer bandwagon and have publicly stated they are going to vote for Clinton in November.  

Maria Comella, Chris Christie's former aide, will vote for Clinton saying that with Trump as the GOP nominee, Republicans "are at a moment where silence isn't an option," CNN reported

"Donald Trump has been a demagogue this whole time, preying on people's anxieties with loose information and salacious rhetoric, drumming up fear and hatred of the 'other,' " Comella said. 

Michael Bloomberg, a former New York City mayor and Doug Elmets, a Republican who served in former President Ronald Reagan’s administration, are both pro-Clinton.

Trump has offended and isolated so many people in our country that even people in his own political party have turned their backs on him and we are glad they are seeing the real Trump that most of us have already witnessed.
