So what happens in Virginia when a GOP National Convention Delegate refuses to vote for the nominee they pledged to vote for?
An absolute void of leadership from the Virginia State GOP Chairman John Whitbeck.
An Arizona Delegate just jumped on the Dump Trump train and said she plans to vote her “conscience” and vote for someone else.
According to AZ Central:
An Arizona delegate to next week’s Republican National Convention has announced she won’t be voting for Donald Trump despite rules that require her to toe the party line.
“Simply put,” Lori Hack wrote Sunday on her Facebook page, “he doesn’t represent our party and he can’t win in November. Not only do the moral objections to his candidacy run deep, but his positions are also absolutely untrustworthy. He speaks by the seat of his pants and floats ideas out into thin air only to retract them the next day when they are ill-received.”
Hack is part of Free the Delegates, which is hoping to change the rules next week in order to pick a different nominee in Cleveland.
That is, if she’s still a delegate.
So instead of a complete lack of leadership from the RPV Chairman Whitbeck who isn’t shy about pulling resignations out of thin air when the miscreant is a Conservative named Mark Berg, Arizona has a real leader at the help of the state’s GOP named Robert Graham. Oh that Virginia could find a Republican leader with the balls to do his job.
Graham wrote the would be delegate:
“I was disappointed to hear you have changed your mind about being a delegate and that you have withdrawn your pledge to follow Arizona law and party rules that bind all of Arizona’s 58 delegates to the Republican National Convention,” he wrote. “I am interpreting your action as your resignation as a member of the Arizona delegation.”
Where you at Whitbeck?
Maybe you should change your name to match your leadership style.
