A GOP Senator Is Writing in Colin Powell in November. There’s Just One Little Problem.

mark kirkSenator Mark Kirk, a major Republican who has un-endorsed Donald Trump, announced on CNN this afternoon he’s writing in Colin Powell.

When Brooke Baldwin asked about Hillary Clinton, Kirk said, “I can’t support someone who is for the Iran agreement.”

Er, he might want to reconsider that Powell write-in vote then. Per NBC News:

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell expressed support for the nuclear agreement with Iran on Sunday, calling the various planks Iranian leaders accepted “remarkable” and dismissing critics’ concerns over its implementation.

“It’s a pretty good deal,” he said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

He referred to “remarkable changes” in the deal and defended it from critics and said, “I think a very vigorous verification regime has been put into place.”

Also, Kirk admitted that he thinks Clinton would be a bigger risk than Trump at this point.
