50+ Business Leaders To Endorse Hillary Clinton

After a heated Wednesday, where presumptive presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump dissed each other in public speeches, Clinton’s campaign decided to release a list of important supporters.

On Thursday, the Clinton campaign committee made public a list of endorsements that ranged from Berkshire Hathaway Inc.’s Warren Buffett to the three co-founders of Airbnb. Also included in this register were several other startup leaders: top executives from QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM), Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB) and Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE: DAL); some big-time celebrities and even a few well-known Republicans

The list of endorsements comes at the right time, not only to back up Clinton in her verbal battle against Trump, but also to confirm she hasn't lost Wall Street’s support, as CNBC recently reported several investors said they would no longer finance her campaign if she chose Elizabeth Warren as her running mate.
