Mel Martinez not only won't vote for Donald Trump, but made it clear that really, all you need in order to get his vote this election is a beating heart.
Martinez, a former Florida senator and Republican National Committee chairman, told The Wall Street Journal that he won't cast his ballot for Trump, adding: "If there is any, any, any other choice, a living, breathing person with a pulse, I would be there." Now that his first choice, Jeb Bush, is out of the race, he's supporting Marco Rubio, although he's pretty sure the Florida senator won't win his state's March 15 primary. "It's kind of cooked, Trump's path to the nomination," he said.
Martinez said he won't vote for Hillary Clinton if she's the Democratic nominee, but did tell WSJ he would have backed Vice President Joe Biden had he decided to run. Martinez wasn't the only former RNC chairman speaking out against Trump; Ken Mehlman tweeted out a message to the Republican frontrunner on Monday, WSJ reports. Mehlman called Trump out for not disavowing former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke during an appearance on CNN, tweeting: "Leaders don't need to do research to reject Klan support #NeverTrump."
