Bush Institute Founding Director Endorses Clinton–Politico

Louis Nelson writes at Politico:

Former President George W. Bush’s Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy is the latest high-ranking Republican to announce his support for Hillary Clinton’s White House bid.

James Glassman, who is also the founding director of the George W. Bush Institute at the former president’s library in Dallas, told MSNBC Monday evening that Clinton is “by far the superior candidate.”

“She has the experience. She’s got the character. She has the values,” Glassman said. “She is the kind of candidate I support and that, as I say, millions of republicans are supporting.”

Glassman joins a number of former Bush officials in backing Clinton. Former deputy secretary of state Richard Armitage and Lezlee Westine, a former aide to President Bush, have announced their support, as has former Bush State Dept. and NSC official Kori Schake. Sally Bradshaw, who managed two gubernatorial campaigns for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, has also said she will vote for Clinton if the presidential race in her home state “is close.” Other Bush administration officials, such as former CIA and NSA director Michael Hayden, have been loudly critical of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump but have stopped short of announcing plans to support the former secretary of state.
