(ROLLCALL) — President George W. Bush's onetime commerce secretary announced he would back Hillary Clinton instead of Republican nominee Donald Trump.
"I'm not thinking about [it as] a Republican, I'm thinking about [it as] a US citizen," Carlos Gutierrez said on CNN's "State of Union" on Sunday. "I think at some point, you have to put the party aside and say what's best for the country? I don't want to live in a society that I think Donald Trump will create."
Gutierrez, who served as commerce secretary from 2005 to 2009, also said he had concerns about Trump's economic plans.
