In a week filled with Republican rejections, Donald Trump did score a GOP endorsement.
Former senator and 1996 Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole joined the list of GOP leaders who will support Trump, announcing his endorsement on Friday.
“The voters of our country have turned out in record numbers to support Mr. Trump,” Dole said in a statement. “It is important that their votes be honored and it is time that we support the party’s presumptive nominee.”
The growing civil war within the GOP swelled this week as party leaders continued to distance themselves from Trump, declaring they would skip the Republican National Convention in July.
Dole, a former Republican National Committee chairman, said he would attend the party’s convention and urged others to do the same.
“I plan to attend the RNC convention in Cleveland to show my support for our party and our ticket, as I have done my entire life. We must unite as a party to defeat Hillary Clinton,” Dole said in the statement released by the Trump campaign.
