Electoral College voters based in Colorado have formed a political non-profit to block Donald TrumpDonald TrumpMcCabe wins back full FBI pension after being fired under Trump Biden's Supreme Court reform study panel notes 'considerable' risks to court expansion Bennie Thompson not ruling out subpoenaing Trump MORE from the presidency.
According to The Denver Post, Michael Baca, a Democratic elector, filed paperwork Tuesday with the Colorado Secretary of State's Office to create the "Hamilton Electors," a group able to fundraise unlimited donations from individuals, corporations and labor unions for political reasons.
The goal of the group is to convince Republican and Democratic Electoral College voters to unify behind a Republican alternative for President or force an Electoral College deadlock.
“I was opposed, actually, to raising money because I would prefer to just have this done organically,” Baca told The Denver Post. “But we’ve had people throwing money at us through our website.”
Baca also told the newspaper several Democratic voters and one Republican voter have officially committed to the movement, and the group is in talks with four other Republican voters as well. It will be difficult however. There are laws in 29 states that prohibit electors from voting contrary to how the state's population votes.
Ultimately, Baca thinks the success of the movement is unlikely, but is pursing it anyway.
“In all likelihood, when it’s all said and done, we’ll probably end up sending that money back to the people,” Baca told The Denver Post.
