Former GOP presidential nominee Bob Dole has endorsed presumptive nominee Donald Trump, the Trump campaign announced Friday.
“The voters of our country have turned out in record numbers to support Mr. Trump. It is important that their votes be honored and it is time that we support the party’s presumptive nominee, Donald J. Trump,” Dole said in the Trump statement. “I plan to attend the RNC convention in Cleveland to show my support for our party and our ticket, as I have done my entire life. We must unite as a party to defeat Hillary Clinton. Donald Trump is our party’s presumptive nominee and our best chance at taking back the White House this November.”
Dole is the only GOP presidential nominee who has said he will attend the convention this summer.
Trump said it is a “great honor” to have Dole’s support and called him a “wonderful man.”
