Lists of Prominent Moderate Republican Defectors

Will the last moderate republican to defect to the Kerry campaign please turn off the lights?

In recent days, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune has printed a series of open letters from prominent republicans who feel they cannot, in good conscience, vote for Bush.

The dkosopedia has a collection of republican defector lists. Some notables are:

Lee Iacocca, former Chrysler Chairman -- June 25
Russell E. Train
, EPA chief under Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford -- Jul. '04
Pete McCloskey, former Republican Representative from California -- Sept. 8
Elmer L. Andersen, former Republican Governor of Minnesota (1961-63) -- Oct. 13
William Milliken, former Republican Governor of Michigan (1969-82) -- Oct. 18
Peter Gillette, former Republican Commissioner of Trade for Minnesota (1991-95) -- Oct. 20
Steve Chapman, conservative syndicated columnist, Chicago Tribune -- Oct. 24
Andrew Sullivan, conservative columnist, former editor of The New Republic -- Oct. 26 (on Jul. 25 he announced he wouldn't vote for Bush)
Jack Bogle Founder of the Vanguard Mutual Fund.
David Durenberger, former Senator from Minnesota (1978-95) -- Oct. 27 (endorsing Kerry health plan over Bush's)

Even Independence Party mascot, former MN Governor Jesse Ventura will not vote for Bush.
