Meg Whitman — the president and CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, a onetime California gubernatorial candidate, and prominent GOP fundraiser — is supporting Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

"I will vote for Hillary, I will talk to my Republican friends about helping her, and I will donate to her campaign and try to raise money for her," she told The New York Times. Whitman said she does not agree with Clinton on every issue, but it's time for Republicans to "put country first before party." Donald Trump is a "dangerous demagogue," she said, who could take the country on a "very dangerous journey" and has already "undermined the character of the nation."
