*LBN-INVESTIGATES: While many Republicans have declined to embrace Trump’s candidacy, a growing but significantly smaller group has gone so far as to express support for Clinton. This list focuses on the latter Republicans supporting Hillary:

Bush administration officials

  • Henry Paulson treasury secretary
  • Richard Armitage, deputy secretary of state and adviser to Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush — Trump “doesn’t appear to be to be a Republican, he doesn’t appear to want to learn about issues. So I’m going to vote for Mrs. Clinton.”
  • Brent Scowcroft, chairman of the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board and adviser to three previous GOP presidents — “The presidency requires the judgment and knowledge to make tough calls under pressure…. [Clinton] has the wisdom and experience to lead our country at this critical time.”
  • Alan Steinberg, regional EPA administrator
  • Kori Schake, National Security Council and State Department aide

Advisers to previous GOP presidents

  • Doug Elmets, former Reagan spokesman — “I could live with four years of Hillary Clinton before I could ever live with one day of Donald Trump as president.”
  • Jim Cicconi, former Reagan and George H.W. Bush aide — “Hillary Clinton is experienced, qualified and will make a fine president. The alternative, I fear, would set our nation on a very dark path.”
