Bob Dole, Dick Cheney Endorse Trump

Dole gets it:  'We must unite as a party to defeat Hillary Clinton'

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and 1996 Republican presidential nominee Bob Dole are both gingerly hopping aboard the Trump train.

Cheney, 75 told CNN on Friday that he has always backed the GOP's nominees for the White House, and this year will be no exception.

Hours later the Trump campaign released a statement from Dole, a former Kansas senator who couldn't stop Bill Clinton's re-election effort 20 years ago, saying he was in the same boat.

'The voters of our country have turned out in record numbers to support Mr. Trump,' said the 92-year-old Dole, who was also the Republican National Committee chairman in the 1970s.

'It is important that their votes be honored and it is time that we support the party's presumptive nominee.'  
'We must unite as a party to defeat Hillary Clinton,' Dole added.
