Meg Whitman, a Silicon Valley executive and onetime California gubernatorial candidate, on Tuesday joined a growing list of high-profile Republicans to forcefully denounce Donald Trump and declare they will vote for Hillary Clinton in November.  

Calling the Republican presidential nominee a "dishonest demagogue" in a New York Times interview , Whitman said she would throw her weight behind Clinton's campaign, offering a substantial contribution and her services as a fundraiser.
