Anti-Trump Virginia Delegate to Present Case to Judge

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- A Virginia delegate to the Republican National Committee who wants to avoid voting for presumptive nominee Donald Trump at the party convention later this month is set to make his case before a federal judge.
    
The delegate, Carroll Correll Jr. of Winchester, Virginia, argues in a lawsuit that being forced to vote against his conscience is a violation of his constitutional rights. Correll says he won't vote for Trump because he believes the billionaire businessman is unfit to serve as president.
    
Virginia binds its delegates' first round of votes at the convention to the results of the March 1 primary, which Trump won.
    
Judge Robert E. Payne is set to hear arguments in the case Thursday morning in Richmond.
