Top Jeb Bush Advisor Leaves the GOP, Will Vote for Clinton If It Comes to That

Republican ElephantA top advisor to Jeb Bush is leaving the Republican Party, and it’s pretty clear that Donald Trump is a major reason why.

According to CNN, Sally Bradshaw believes that Trump’s behavior so awful and appalling that this election is not just about left versus right, but about temperament and a time for “country… to take priority over political parties.”

Here’s why she can’t stand to be a Republican anymore:

“This election cycle is a test,” Bradshaw said. “As much as I don’t want another four years of (President Barack) Obama’s policies, I can’t look my children in the eye and tell them I voted for Donald Trump. I can’t tell them to love their neighbor and treat others the way they wanted to be treated, and then vote for Donald Trump. I won’t do it.”

And that’s why a loyal and steadfast Republican is actually saying she might vote for Hillary Clinton.

Not definitively, but as Bradshaw put it, “If the race in Florida is close, I will vote for Hillary Clinton.”

She emphasizes that she would have been fine with any other Republican contender ending up as the nominee, but “we are at a crossroads and have nominated a total narcissist — a misogynist — a bigot.”

“To continue to be the hope of the world,” Bradshaw concludes, “all Americans regardless of party affiliation have to reject him.”
