Will local TN GOP members support Donald Trump for president?

Posted: Updated:

Local Republican leaders have mixed reactions to Donald Trump being the presumptive nominee.

Some say they will back him, while others aren't quite ready to.

Weston Wamp, a former congressional candidate for the 3rd District, said he voted Republican in the last few presidential contests. But, he said this election is chaos and hasn't made up his mind on whether he will vote for Trump in November.

"I think if Donald Trump would show some seriousness about doing this the right way and will align himself with someone like Newt Gingrich or Marco Rubio, who is going to be a professionalism to that ticket, where somebody like me can vote with confidence that Donald Trump is not going to make a mockery," said Wamp.

Senator Lamar Alexander said on Wednesday that Trump wasn't his first choice, but the American people have spoken.

Senator Bob Corker released a statement that said his plan has always been to support the Republican nominee.

Former Presidents George Bush and George W. Bush said they plan to stay silent during this election season. 

A CNN poll has Hillary leading Trump by double digits.
