Here’s one for the history books. A man actively running for national office came within a hair’s width of fully endorsing a competing ticket!
Last night Libertarian VP candidate William Weld, the former Republican Governor of Massachusetts, gave an explosive interview to Rachel Maddow.
He didn’t officially endorse Hillary, but he walked up to the line and his toes were touching that line. Aside from that, he blasted Trump in clear and damning language. “I fear for the country,” if Trump wins, he told Maddow.
Equally importantly, he spoke glowingly and effusively about Hillary, a woman he’s known for decades. And as a former U.S. prosecutor (U.S. Attorney for Massachusetts) he also decisively dismissed the FBI’s botched handling of Hillary’s email case.
Rachel Maddow seemed somewhat flummoxed by what she was hearing, and it made for compelling television.
Weld’s running mate, Gary Johnson, must be pissed, but Weld knows the stakes are too high for political selfishness.
BRAVO, Governor Weld!
Thanks for caring about the truth.
