Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker was the second candidate to step out of the race for the GOP presidential candidacy, nobly asking that others follow suit, in order to avoid exactly what ended up happening.
Now Governor Walker is stepping up, again.
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker said Tuesday that delegates to next month’s Republican National Convention in Cleveland should “vote the way they see fit,” which could mean not necessarily supporting presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Walker, a former Republican presidential candidate and delegate to the convention, said he would cast his ballot in the first round for Ted Cruz, as the Texas senator won the Wisconsin primary, according to a report from The Associated Press.
Walker, who endorsed Senator Cruz during the primaries, had said he would support the eventual nominee, whoever it was. He, like others, however, has since backed off of his support of Trump, due to the incendiary remarks of the gilded toad.
“I think historically, not just this year, delegates are and should be able to vote the way they see fit,” Walker said, according to the AP. “We’ll see how things go between now and the convention as to what the next steps are. I’m not going to speculate now only because you all know the situation may change by this afternoon, let alone between now and the convention.”
There has been some confusion, as to whether delegates are bound to the nominee, but increasingly, it has been put forth that delegates are free to vote their conscience and are in no way bound to Trump.
