Texas Elector May Go "Faithless"

One elector, who is pledged to vote for President-elect Donald Trump, has announced that he will not be casting his vote for the President-elect.

Christopher Suprun, of Dallas, wrote an editorial for the New York Times, announcing that he would not be voting for Trump.

"I am a Republican presidential elector, one of the 538 people asked to choose officially the president of the United States." Suprun wrote in the New York Times, "Since the election, people have asked me to change my vote based on policy disagreements with Donald J. Trump. In some cases, they cite the popular vote difference. I do not think presidents-elect should be disqualified for policy disagreements. I do not think they should be disqualified because they won the Electoral College instead of the popular vote. However, now I am asked to cast a vote on Dec. 19 for someone who shows daily he is not qualified for the office."

Suprun goes on to say that Republicans could potentially stop Trump by unifying behind a candidate, like Ohio Governor John Kasich.

The Electoral College is slated to vote on December 19th.
