NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nearly three months after former presidential
candidate Ted Cruz was booed off the stage at the Republican National
Convention in Cleveland after failing to endorse Republican presidential
nominee Donald Trump, and instead telling voters to “vote their
conscience,” the Tennessee Republican Party is telling voters in the
Volunteer State to do the same thing.
“We’re encouraging people to vote their conscience,” Brent Leatherwood with the Tennessee Republican Party said in a statement to NewsChannel 5. “We view our job as one to continue the advance of the conservative cause by defeating Democrats. So we encourage Tennesseans to vote consistent with their conservative convictions.” (link)
My Comment: "Vote your conscience" means you are still a good Republican if you don't vote for Trump. I was not voting Trump anyway, but now I can do it know I won't be excommunicated.
