UPDATE: Turncoat Texas GOP Elector Says Others Will Join Him in Opposing Trump
Texas presidential elector Chris Suprun says he will not cast his vote for Donald Trump.
Suprun signed a pledge last summer to support the Republican nominee.
Suprun is a #NeverTrumper.
His Twitter timeline is littered with fellow #NeverTrumper gibberish.
If you look at Chris Suprun’s Twitter page you can clearly see that he is using Megaphone Strategies as his PR firm.
Megaphone Strategies was founded by far left activist Van Jones.
It’s mission is “to use use PR as a tool to diversify progressive movements.”
Its clients include: Netroots Nation, Green for All and Demand Progress.
So this so-called conservative is using a far left company founded by Van Jones as a PR firm?
You just can’t make this stuff up!
Suprun says he will not be the only GOP elector to oppose Donald Trump.
ABC News reported:
Meet one of the real 538 electors, Christopher Suprun a Republican from Texas. Suprun has decided to vote for someone other than Donald Trump when he casts his electoral college vote later this month. He believes other electors are right there with him.
“At this point there are people who have reached out to me. Again it wouldn’t be my place to name who they are,” he said, though he indicated he was talking about Republican electors.
“I am confident in saying, at this point,” he continued,”I don’t think I will be the only one voting for someone other than Donald Trump who is carrying a Republican elector seat.”
Suprun told Jonathan Karl and Rick Klein on the Powerhouse Politics Podcast that he is not sure which former candidate will earn the vote since his choice, Ohio Governor John Kasich, has said he is not interested.
“As electors come forward, and I have had conversations with other Republican electors in particular, I think we will start discussing names specifically and see who meets the test that we could all get behind,” he said.
“The point of this isn’t just to go down and raise a little ruckus it is to vote for the person we think would best be able to hold the position.”
Is it too much to ask the GOP to ensure their EC electors has some integrity?
