Former Secretary of State Colin Powell on Tuesday lent another Republican voice in support of Joe Biden in a video recorded for the Democratic National Convention as the Democrats attempt to appeal to more centrist voters.

Powell, who served in President George W. Bush’s administration, is one of several Republicans featured at the Democratic convention this year. Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich and other top Republicans spoke on Monday night, making the case that Biden is the best candidate to win over moderate Republicans.
“The values I learned growing up in the South Bronx and serving in uniform were the same values that Joe Biden’s parents instilled in him in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I support Joe Biden for the presidency of the United States because those values still define him, and we need to restore those values to the White House,” Powell said in a video released by the Democratic National Convention Committee ahead of the second night of convention programming.
