REPUBLICAN OHIO GOVERNOR VETOES NEW ABORTION LAW PRO LIFE ADVOCATES FOUND TO BE DRACONIAN

"Ohio Gov. John Kasich vetoed a measure that would have outlawed abortions after a fetal heartbeat is detected while approving a law that outlaws abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

CNN

What is interesting about this story is both Democratic and Republican Electors have floated Governor Kasich as an alternative to Trump.  Gov. Kasich's veto could have been what was needed to get Democrats on board.

Bush and Obama Ethics Officers wrote today that Donald Trump is setting himself up for immediate impeachment and that the Electors should think about this before voting.  Cases from at least three states are fast tracking to the US Supreme Court to release the Electors to vote their conscience.

I have no idea what is happening behind the scenes.  But I find it interesting that 10 Electors, albeit 9 Democrats and only one Republican called for a briefing on the Russian hacking issue before they vote.

I feel like I am watching an episode of "Survivor" waiting for a a surprise eviction from the show.  This is all any one's guess.  I would not have cared about the Kasich veto except that so many Republicans and Democrats are looking at him as an alternative to Trump.
