Houston Businessman Jim Pierce knows a lot about Presidential politics. As the nephew of George Herbert Walker Bush, the first cousin of George W. Bush and a direct descendant to Franklin Pierce, Presidential politics is in his blood.
Pierce appears to be breaking with his family when it comes to supporting the Republican Presidential candidate Donald J. Trump. In a recent blog post, Pierce says
I want to be very clear. I will vote for the Republican nominee, no matter who that person is. We simply cannot afford 4-8 more years of this unmitigated national nightmare. I will hold my nose and pray, but the vote will be for the GOP….(I fear)…the numbers don’t add up. We could be headed for a Johnson-Goldwater debacle. If you are a Republican and care about your country, I implore you to commit yourself to stopping more progressive leftist destruction. To not vote is to open the door for Hillary.
It sounds like Pierce does not have the overwhelming optimism of some Trump supporters and fears that without full Republican support in November, Republicans that sit out the election will be handing the White House to Clinton.
