Former Starbucks chief executive Howard Schultz, who was considered to be in the White House last year, backed Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden in a statement on Monday.
“In my view, our choice this November is not just for one candidate,” Schultz said in a letter to his supporters Monday, referring to him and his wife, Sherry Kerch Schultz, according to Fox Business. “We are choosing to vote for the future of our republic.”
He added, “What is at stake is democracy: checks and balances. Strict debate. A free press. Acceptability of information, ‘not alternative information’ is the belief of science. Relying on the rule of law. A strong judiciary. In search of all the rights, freedoms and happiness in our lives.
Schultz, referring to the controversy surrounding mail-in voting and the U.S. Postal Service, wrote that “Americans must vote, every American is able to vote safely, in the mail or in person, and every vote is counted. There will be serious miscalculations. ”
The former chief executive added that he “supports non-partisan initiatives to protect the legitimacy of our elections and ensures that the winner of the presidential race is not declared until all votes have been extended.”
