Democrats opened their virtual national convention Monday with an evening of sharp attacks on President Donald Trump, including from four moderate Republicans who urged voters to join them in supporting Joe Biden for president.

“We’re being taken down the wrong road by a president who has pitted one against the other,” former Ohio Governor John Kasich said. “I’m a lifelong Republican, but that attachment holds second place to my responsibility to my country. That’s why I’ve chosen to appear at this convention.”
