Former Reagan Political Director: I’m Voting For Clinton

Former political director for President Reagan, Frank Lavin is voting for Clinton over Trump.

The Hill Reports:

A former political director for President 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, says he will not be voting for the Republican standard-bearer for the first time in 40 years.”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,” Lavin wrote in an op-ed for CNN.

“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,” he wrote.

“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, 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 (R-Va.) has said he plans to support Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson. Rep. Richard Hanna (N.Y.) became the first sitting GOP lawmaker to say he would vote for Clinton.
