More than two dozen former Republican members of Congress officially announced Monday, before the start of the Republican National Convention, that they would endorse Joe Biden.

Former Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona and former Representative Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania are among those supporting the Democratic presidential nominee through "Republicans for Biden."

Trump is still overwhelmingly popular among Republicans, a point made by Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh, who dismissed the significance of the endorsements.
