Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele isn’t supporting Republican nominee Donald Trump, according to a Buzzfeed report Friday.

“I will not be voting for Clinton,” Steele said at a dinner honoring the 40th anniversary of Mother Jones, a progressive magazine. “I will not be voting for Trump either.”

Trump has “captured that racist underbelly, that frustration, that angry underbelly of American life and gave voice to that,” Steele said. “I was damn near puking during the debates.”

Steele was the RNC chair from 2009 through 2011, and former lieutenant governor of the state of Maryland from 2003 to 2007. Steele joined other former chairs Mel Martinez and Marc Racicot who also said they would not vote for Trump.

Steele hasn’t been silent about his poor view of the Republican nominee either; his Twitter account is flush with criticism.
