Their support was offered via statements published on

Alphabet Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt
“I have worked with Secretary Clinton for two decades, and she is uniquely qualified to be President. She has the experience, the insight, the policies and the strength to lead our great country.”

AT&T Services Inc. Senior Vice President Jim Cicconi
“I’ve supported every Republican Presidential candidate since 1976, and was honored to work for two of them. But this year I think it’s vital to put our country’s wellbeing ahead of party.  Hillary Clinton is experienced, qualified, and will make a fine President.  The alternative, I fear, would set our Nation on a very dark path.”

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings
“Trump would destroy much of what is great about America. Hillary Clinton is the strong leader we need, and it’s important that Trump lose by a landslide to reject what he stands for.”
