Longtime Jeb Bush senior adviser Sally Bradshaw, a veteran Republican strategist and Bush family loyalist, told CNN that she had left the Republican Party to become an independent due to Donald Trump's presence at the top of the ticket — and that if the race were close in her home state of Florida this fall, she would be voting for Hillary Clinton.
