The 11 Electoral College voters in Arizona appear undaunted in their decision to cast their ballots Monday for President-elected Donald Trump, despite the tens of thousands of emails, hundreds of letters and even alleged death threats.
“It’s out of hand when you have such … a small group of people that is pushing so hard against millions if not hundreds of millions of people who still appreciate this whole system,” Arizona electorate Donald Graham told Fox News on Saturday. “The Electoral College is part of the Constitution.”
Graham, chairman of the Arizona Republican Party, suggested some of the 11 electors are also being followed and have received death threats but that such tactics are really “more annoying than anything.”
Elector Ed Robson, a Phoenix homebuilder, said those who have sent the stack of letters are “idiots.”
The 11 electors are all Republicans because Trump won the Arizona election with 49 percent of the vote compared to Democrat Hillary Clinton’s 45 percent. They were picked by the state party and will gather Monday to formally cast their votes.
