Dump Trump? That won’t happen when Florida electors vote

Decision 2016

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) – Florida’s electors will meet in the Capital on Monday to cast their votes for president, after voters in the state chose Donald Trump. Don’t expect any surprises.

The people picked to cast Florida’s votes in the Electoral College are among the most faithful Florida Republicans and it’s extremely unlikely any will be swayed by the onslaught of emails, letters and phone calls pleading with them not to cast their votes for Trump, who carried the state in November.

Among the electors are Republican National Committee co-Chair Sharon Day, Republican Party of Florida Chairman Blaise Ingoglia and Susie Wiles and Joe Gruters, who were co-chairs of Trump’s Florida campaign.

The electors were chosen by the state GOP and approved by Republican Gov. Rick Scott, who was a Trump supporter.
