Former Pennsylvania Rep. Charlie Dent
Dent, who resigned from the House in 2018, served as chairman of the House Ethics Committee from 2015 until 2016 and chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies from 2015 until 2018.
Americans, Dent wrote, “are exhausted by the never-ending chaos and daily drama emanating from the White House. They just want stability.”
“That’s why I’m supporting Joe Biden. It’s as simple as that. And if electing Joe Biden is what’s needed to return the GOP to a better place where it becomes more socially tolerant, constructively engaged on the international stage and supportive of reasonably regulated free markets, all the better.”
Dent is a CNN political commentator.
