Chris Christie (N.J.), who backed Trump after ending his own presidential bid, and from five lawmakers, including Sen.

But some Republicans say they cannot support the real estate mogul under any circumstances.
Sen. Ben Sasse (Neb.) became the first lawmaker in the upper chamber to vow not to vote for Trump, saying he would instead search for a third-party contender.
In an open letter to Trump supporters posted on his Facebook page, Sasse claimed that while many who are backing the front-runner are “well-meaning,” he cannot get behind a candidate focused on “tearing down rather than building back up this glorious nation.”
