Four former top Republicans back Joe Biden at DNC - with 2016 presidential loser John Kasich saying candidate will NOT 'turn left' and pleading with GOP voters to vote out Donald Trump

Four former top Republicans formally backed Joe Biden at Monday night's virtual Democratic National Convention festivites, with 2016 GOP hopeful John Kasich promising his fellow party members that the Democrat wouldn't become too liberal. 
'I'm sure there are Republicans and independents who couldn't imagine crossing over to support a Democrat, they fear Joe may turn sharp left and leave them behind. I don't believe that,' Kasich said. 'Because I know the measure of the man - reasonable, faithful, respectful and you know, no one pushes Joe around.'
Kasich was preceded in the program by former GOP New Jersey Gov. Christine Todd Whitman, former New York Rep. Susan Molinari and former GOP California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, the former CEO of Hewlett Packard who now runs Quibi.

'What am I doing here? I'm a lifelong Republican. My parents were introduced at a Republican National Convention by their parents,' Todd Whitman said. 
But she said she was compelled to vote for a 'person decent enough, stable enough, strong enough to get our economy back on track.'
'A person who can work with everyone,' she continued. 'Donald Trump isn't that person. Joe Biden is.' 
Meg Whitman briefly belittled Trump's business acumen. 
'And let me tell you, Donald Trump has no clue how to run a business let alone an economy,' she said. 
While Molinari, who had represented New York City in the House of Representatives, talked about how she knew Trump for most of her political career. 
'So disappointing and lately so disturbing,' she uttered. 
As for Biden, Molinari called him her 'friend.' 
'He really is a good man,' the lawmaker-turned-Google lobbyist said.  
When it was Kasich's turn the camera hovered over the former Ohio governor as he literally stood at some crossroads in Westerville, Ohio, situated outside of Columbus and the former site of a Democratic debate.  
Kasich's point: that Trump had taken the country 'down the wrong road.'  
'It's a path that's led to division, disfunction, irresponsibility and growing vitriol,' Kasich said. 
The former GOP governor pleaded with Republicans to cross party lines. 

'Yes, there are areas where Joe and I absolutely disagree. But that's OK, because that's America,' he said. 
He praised Biden for being a 'good man' and a person who had shown him respect over their 30-year relationship. 
'Joe Biden is a man for our times,' Kasich said. 'Times that call for all of us to take off our partisan hats and put our nation first for ourselves ... and our children.' 
Prior to the appearances of the four Republicans, the Trump campaign had lashed out and called them a number of names.
Kasich, the campaign said, was a 'sore loser.' 
Molinari a 'swamp creature,' who had lobbied for Russian President Vladimir Putin. 
The Trump campaign also noted that Meg Whitman and Christine Todd Whitman had already voted Democratic once - selecting Hillary Clinton over Trump in 2016.
