Chris Suprun, a Republican elector from Texas, says he will not cast one of Texas’ 38 electoral votes for Trump. This despite Trump winning the state by nine percent, and Suprun having signed a pledge to vote for the winner.
I’m expecting backlash, but that has been par for the course this campaign. People are unhappy. They’re angry. But I’m angry, too. I was told if we elected Donald Trump he would transform his personality into being presidential. He isn’t,” Suprun said. “I wanted him to be presidential, but since the election he hasn’t grown into our institution, he’s attacked them. I am here to elect a president, not a king. I am not sure of who I will vote for, but would have to strongly consider someone like (Ohio Gov. John) Kasich who has both executive and legislative experience bringing people together.
