A big name on the Las Vegas Strip has crossed the aisle to throw his support behind Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

In an editorial written for USA Today, MGM CEO Jim Murren made his first public endorsement of a presidential candidate, despite being a life-long Republican.

He says Clinton's knowledge and solution-oriented approach toward trade and energy policy are just part of what pushed him to make the endorsement.
