GOP leaders in battleground states that took President-elect Joe Biden to the White House have flat-out refused to make their state’s electors vote for Donald Trump.

State GOP lawmakers in Arizona, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin told the Associated Press they wouldn’t mess with the electoral college votes. “I do not see, short of finding some type of fraud—which I haven’t heard of anything—I don’t see us in any serious way addressing a change in electors,” Arizona Republican House Speaker Rusty Bowers said. “They are mandated by statute to choose according to the vote of the people.” Several Republican lawmakers said that meddling with elector selection would violate state law.
