Republican Elector Won't Vote Trump

In an op-ed for The New York Times, Texas presidential elector Christopher Suprun, explains why he will not cast his vote for the President-elect Donald Trump on December 19, the date at which the 538 electors are supposed to formally vote for the president. "I watch Mr. Trump fail to unite America and drive a wedge between us," Suprun writes of his decision. "Mr. Trump goes out of his way to attack the cast of “Saturday Night Live” for bias. He tweets day and night, but waited two days to offer sympathy to the Ohio State community after an attack there. He does not encourage civil discourse, but chooses to stoke fear and create outrage." A number of electors have discussed not voting for Trump, who won the electoral college.
