Several members of the Electoral College across the country started a movement to keep Donald Trump out of office, calling themselves the “Hamilton Electors”. Their plan is to rally so-called “faithless electors” around a moderate Republican to become president instead of Trump.
But there’s a potential snag in Colorado. State law requires all nine electors to vote for the winner of the popular vote, which is Hillary Clinton this year.
Colorado Secretary of State’s Office announced that a federal lawsuit is being filed in hopes of striking down that Colorado law. An emergency hearing has been scheduled for Monday morning to hear the case.
Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman and Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams are named as defendants in the suit. The lawsuit is being filed by two of Colorado’s Democratic electors, Polly Baca – a former state senator – and Robert Nemanich.
