Dent Endorses Biden for President

A former GOP congressman from Pennsylvania is backing the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate. 

Former Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Lehigh) announced his decision to endorse former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign on Wednesday afternoon during an interview on CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper.

“At the end of the day, this really isn’t about right or left, it’s not about ideology,” Dent said during the interview. “For me, it’s about right or wrong, stability versus instability, security versus insecurity, normal versus abnormal.”

 

 

Shortly after the interview was aired, Dent also shared an op-ed that he wrote that further explains his decision to support Biden’s candidacy over a fellow Republican. 

 

 

In this op-ed, he lays out his admiration for a number of older Pennsylvania Republicans including Dick Thornburgh, Arlen Specter, John Heinz, Tom Ridge and Mark Schweiker and described it as the “Pennsylvania Republican Party, in which I proudly and very comfortably grew up.” 

Dent, who served in Congress from 2005-2019, was a leader of the moderate GOP Tuesday Group and emerged as a vocal critic of Trump within the party when the president was elected. In March 2019, Dent did not deny a report from the New York Times that Trump told him that he was “destroying the Republican Party.” Dent also did not support Trump in 2016, but instead voted for independent candidate Evan McMullin

After deciding not to seek reelection in 2018, Dent announced that he’d be taking a role with CNN, where he has been a political commentator since his retirement. Since taking this role, he’s continually voiced his difference of opinion with Trump and perhaps even hinted at this endorsement in an op-ed he wrote for CNN on July 6 titled, “The GOP after Trump: a recipe for survival” where he derided “Trumpism” as “simply unable and incapable of responding with the kind of leadership this moment demands.”

      I can’t wait for the RNC convention next week. I so badly want to hear Mike Lindell’s progress on his “vaccine” to rid us of this democratic hoax, covid-19. I also hear Vladimir Putin and Kim Jung Un will be singing a duet serenading our “Great” President.
      It’s rumored Stormy Daniel’s will be sitting with Melania and Ivanka.
      Lastly, I hear Count Rudy Guiliani is going to bring in a bunch of vampire bats to fly around President Trump when he gives his acceptance speech.
      This will be the best RNC ever!!!!

  27. William Penn says:

    Rep. Dent is exhibiting the best of our centrist state by avoiding right vs left and looking at the value of the candidate. Our politics needs to start looking at the candidate and not ideology.

  33. Harold Miller says:

    My grandparents and my parent’s were solid Republicans but today’s party has gone so far right that I’am walking away. From the exploding deficit spending and tax cuts for the wealthy, saying nothing about the Russians targeting American troops and a con man who has pedaled false cures for a disease that has killed nearly 200,000 Americans, I’m done. Russia has American blood on their hands and so does Trump and Pence.

    Voting for Biden this year.

  34. Harold Miller says:

    My grandparents and my parent’s were solid Democrats but today’s party has gone so far left that I’am walking away . From defunding the police , saying nothing about the riots and backing a man who backed Obama when he released 150 billion in cash and gold to Iran , I’m done . Iran has American blood on their
    hands and so does Biden and Obama .

    Voting for Trump this year .

    1. truth says:

      I guess the kids in cages being raped by private guards and the 170,000 Covid dead Americans by Trump’s incompetence and neglect do not bother you.

      1. notincompetentlosers says:

        Wrong , that’s Bill Clinton who raped kids in cages that Obama built . Old folks have to go one way or another – Joe Biden 2029

        1. truth says says:

          Ouch !!!

      2. Joe bin hiden says:

        Screw you fake truth! Damn illegals are lucky they even gotta cage. Should just be hanged. And quit that bullshit made up crap about Covid dead. God hates liars like you, just like the queers.

  35. Steven C. Mentzer says:

    As a life-long conservative who has voted for a Republican presidential candidate every election since I first became eligible to vote I can no longer sit idly by and watch the Trump wing of the party I love destroy this county. The last straw was the president’s response to the coronavirus.

    I will be supporting Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the 2020 election.

  36. Sen. Mike Regan says:

    Another elected Republican official supporting Biden, that’s what I like to see.

  37. Montco Resident says:

    Pour that sweet suburban GOP erosion directly into my veins.
