Here are the GOP ‘traitors’ who’d rather see Hillary win than Trump ‘make America great again’

Bizpacreview reported:

Some big-name Republicans, some not-so-big name members of the party, and some party has-beens are leading an exodus away from Donald Trump.

Though Trump secured the GOP nomination with more than the needed number of delegates, many prominent Republicans seem bent on fighting his candidacy, putting the party at risk for losing November’s election to Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The list of about 200 includes current and former elected officials and lawmakers, party officials and conservative pundits.

Senators like South Carolina’s Lindsey Graham and Nebraska’s Ben Sasse have been vocal opponents to Trump. Former presidential hopeful U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz made headlines for refusing to endorse the nominee at the Republican National Convention.

Some, like New York Congressman Richard Hanna, have openly declared they will vote for Clinton.

What follows is a current list of prominent Republicans who many may see as traitors to the party, backing opposing party nominees or simply not rallying behind Trump who fairly won the nomination.
