Kasich To The Electoral College: It Is Time For Us To Come Together As Americans

Democrats who have been urging Republican members of the Electoral College to vote for John Kasich instead of Donald Trump are not getting any help from the Ohio governor.

Politico reported that on Tuesday, Kasich publicly asked the electors to cast their ballots for the president-elect when they meet Dec. 19 at their state capitals. He made the announcement in response to reports that at least eight Democratic electors were lobbying their GOP counterparts to help prevent Trump from taking office by shifting their allegiance to the governor. A Republican elector from Texas recently joined the campaign.

“I am not a candidate for president and ask that electors not vote for me when they gather later this month,” the Ohio governor said in a Twitter post. “Our country had an election and Donald Trump won. The country is divided and there are certainly raw emotions on both sides stemming from the election. But this approach, as well meaning as it is, will only serve to further divide our nation, when unity is what we need.”

Kasich, who refused to endorse Trump after ending his own campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, stressed that “the election is over.” He added: “Now is the time for all of us to come together as Americans.”
