Former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden in a video recorded for the Democratic National Convention Tuesday.
Powell, who served in George W. Bush’s administration, is among several Republicans who have crossed the political line to support Biden. Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich and other top Republicans spoke Monday night, making the case that Biden is the best candidate to win over moderate Republicans.
Powell has endorsed Democrats in each of the last three elections. In fact, the last time Powell supported a Republican was George W. Bush, who Powell worked under as the Secretary of State from 2001 to 2005; he was the first African American to hold that job.
