There goes another one.
Hank Paulson, chairman of the Paulson Institute and a former Treasury secretary in George W. Bush's administration, will neither vote for Donald Trump in November nor abstain, he wrote in an op-ed published Friday in The Washington Post.
"I'll be voting for Hillary Clinton with the hope that she can bring Americans together to do the things necessary to strengthen our economy, our environment and our place in the world," Paulson wrote. "To my Republican friends: I know I'm not alone."
Paulson is the latest George W. Bush administration official to not only reject the Republican Party's presumptive presidential nominee, but to declare support for Clinton. Former Bush Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage told POLITICO last week he would vote for Clinton.
