Chris Suprun was featured by The New York Times and is an elector from the state of Texas opts out of the electoral vote for Trump. Joining Chris Salcedo by phone, for a reaction on this scenario, is Lieutenant Governor of Texas Dan Patrick. He talks about how states are now passing laws to force electors to follow the will of the people rather than personal bias.

"You know what, I know that the voters of Texas by a large margin put up Donald Trump as President of the United States, but you know what, I'm gonna vote differently because I don't like Donald Trump," Chris says quoting Chris Suprun.

"My reaction is this is the type of action by an individual that will probably prompt us in this upcoming session to look at passing a law as twenty other states have done," Lt. Governor Patrick says. "Electors must follow the will of the people."
