GOP Sen. Mark Kirk: I cannot support Donald Trump - CNNPolitics.comWashington (CNN)Republican Sen. Mark Kirk said Tuesday that Donald Trump "does not have the temperament" to hold the job of president, saying he "cannot and will not support" the presumptive GOP presidential nominee.
It was sharp criticism from an incumbent who had previously insisted he would support the GOP nominee.
The Illinois Republican, who faces a tough challenge this November from Illinois Democratic Rep. Tammy Duckworth, tweeted Tuesday that based on his background in the military, he does not have faith in Trump to lead.
"Given my military experience, Donald Trump does not have the temperament to command our military or our nuclear arsenal," Kirk wrote.
Another rat deserting the sinking Trump.
Will this help Kirk retain his seat? I guess he thinks so. I doubt it will help him and he will lose in November. It is looking good for the Dems to retake the Senate. They will need to wait until 2018 to retake the House though.
