Meg Whitman campaigning for Hillary Clinton in Colorado

August 30, 2016

DENVER (AP) — Republican donor and fundraiser Meg Whitman is hitting the campaign trail for Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The Hewlett-Packard executive is meeting with business leaders in Denver on Tuesday to talk about Clinton’s plans for jobs and the economy.

Whitman endorsed Clinton earlier this month over fellow Republican Donald Trump, saying she cannot support a candidate who has “exploited anger, grievance, xenophobia and racial division.”

The former eBay CEO ran unsuccessfully for California governor in 2010, spending $144 million of her own money while losing to Democrat Jerry Brown.

Whitman was the national finance co-chair of Republican New Jersey candidate Gov. Chris Christie’s presidential campaign before he dropped out and endorsed Trump.
