    US voters should back Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton despite her imperfections because she is the superior option to Donald Trump, Republican Party donor and healthcare industry billionaire Mike Fernandez said in an op-ed on Thursday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Fernandez emphasized that despite the toughness of his decision, he did not want to use loyalty to the Republican Party as an excuse for his presidential vote.

    "Vote for Hillary Clinton and then every single Republican on the ticket," Fernandez wrote in the Miami Herald. "I harbor no illusion that Clinton is perfect; none of us is… However, Clinton is, without doubt, a superior choice to Donald Trump."

    The healthcare mogul donated $3 million to Jeb Bush’s campaign during the Republican presidential primary race, according to OpenSecrets.org, citing Federal Election Commission (FEC) data.

    "As a Republican who has contributed millions of dollars to the party’s causes, I ask: Why has our party not sought a psychological evaluation of its nominee?" Fernandez added.

    In 2015, Fernandez wrote an article for the Miami Herald in support of President Barack Obama’s plans to restore relations with Cuba, the billionaire’s native country.
