Elected Official Who May Not Vote For President At All
U.S. Rep. Mike Coffman (His spokeswoman said her boss would “absolutely” back the GOP presidential nominee, but Coffman later hedged, and now Coffman says he won’t vote for Trump.) Now Coffman is saying he’s not sure he’ll cast a ballot for president.
Elected Officials who Backed Trump, Dumped Him, but Haven’t Said Whom They Will Vote for
Sen. Cory Gardner (once called Trump a “buffoon,” then said he’d vote for him (after being asked seven times), and then dumped him. Gardner said he’d write-in Pence, but if he does, his vote won’t count, because it’s too late to do this, under Colorado rules. So we don’t know whom Gardner is voting for.
