CENTRAL COAST, Calif. - Republican congressional candidate Casey Lucius is making it known she won't vote for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
On Thursday, Lucius made the official announcement to campaign followers.
"It has become clear that Donald Trump lacks the personal qualities that are needed to be president. His privileged lifestyle handed to him has left him intolerant and out of touch with working Americans. This is a time when we need a leader with diplomatic skills who can bring the country together and rebuild America's credibility internationally." Lucius closes with, "Trump's brash comments and racist remarks have no place in American politics. With just under 90 days until the election I am saddened by the choices we have left."
Lucius is a council member in Pacific Grove and is running for California Congressional District 20. She has served on active duty as a Naval Intelligence Officer for seven years, has an MA in National Security Affairs and a PhD in Political Science. She is also a former professor at the Naval War College.
