Walker says delegates should vote their conscience
WATERTOWN, Wis. (AP) -
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker says he agrees that delegates to the Republican national convention should be free to vote their conscience, even if that means not supporting presumptive nominee Donald Trump.
Walker is a former presidential candidate and a delegate to the convention next month. Walker told reporters Tuesday he will follow Wisconsin Republican Party rules and cast his ballot for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in the first round because Cruz won the state primary.
But Walker says he thinks House Speaker Paul Ryan is "legitimate" in saying delegates should be free to vote their conscience.
Walker says "delegates are and should be able to vote the way they see fit."
Walker endorsed Trump as the presumptive nominee, but he has been wavering in his support.
