Former Republican Governor Endorses Clinton

The former governor of Michigan, William Grawn Milliken, has endorsed Hillary Clinton for president.  

“This nation has long prided itself on its abiding commitments to tolerance, civility and equality," Milliken said in a statement, according to the Detroit Free Press. Milliken was the Lieutenant Governor under Mitt Romney's father, George, and was a career politician for nearly 20 years.

"We face a critically important choice in this year's presidential election that will define whether we maintain our commitment to those ideals or embark on a path that has doomed other governments and nations throughout history,” he continued.

This is not the first Republican to endorse Clinton.  Frank Lavin, former political director for Ronald Reagan, also plans to vote for Clinton over Trump.

"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 said.
