Romney Finance Chair: "I Will Be Voting For Hillary Clinton"; "For Me It's All About Character"


David Nierenberg, the finance chair for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential bid, tells MSNBC he will be voting for Hillary Clinton.

NIERENBERG: I will be voting for Hillary Clinton... For me it’s all about character, temperament and fitness to be president. It is the most powerful person in the free world. I’m a father of 3 adult children, I want to be thoughtful about the world in which they are going to grow up. They’re probably going to live till the end of this century. God willing they will have children of their own. I want to have a president who is centered, stable, civil, decent, compassionate, inclusive not divisive, not name calling, not scapegoating, not verbally abusive. And, from having worked with Mitt for 39 years - because he was my first boss - and then worked with him as a volunteer for years in his campaign, I have a sense of what a presidential temperament is like.

People may disagree with Mitt’s positions on some issues, they may regret some individual things that he has said, but I don’t think there is anybody who would say that isn’t a decent, compassionate, competent, capable man who was ready to President. And I simply do not think from everything that I have been seeing and reading - the crisis of the day - including the things you’ve been talking about in the last several minutes, I don’t think Donald Trump will ever be fit to be the President of the United States.

Nierenberg: I’ve been a Republican since 1980 but I’m voting for Hillary Clinton
