I have spent my life trying to defend democracy around the world as a member of the US military, but now our democracy at home needs defending from politicians who would rather try and pick who gets to vote rather than try reaching out and engaging their neighbors in thoughtful discussion. In an age where foreign adversaries seek to sow division in our country and our own politicians seek to exploit that division rather than try and create unity, I think it’s critical we choose someone we can trust to run our elections.
