Republicans For Kerry

Both The Carpetbagger Report and DemWatch report that a number of high-profile Republicans and conservatives have recently endorsed John Kerry for President, including:

  • William G. Milliken, Republican Governor of Michigan, 1969-1982

  • Scott McConnell, The American Conservative writer

  • Clyde Prestowitz, Reagan administration Commerce Department official

  • Former Representative Bob Barr (R-GA)

  • Robert A. George, New York Post writer and former Newt Gingrich aide

This is in addition to the previous endorsements by Republicans such as Ambassador John Eisenhower (son of Dwight D. Eisenhower) and former Nixon administration EPA director Russell Train.
