TEWKSBURY, N.J. (AP) - Don’t count former New Jersey Gov. Christie Whitman among Republicans ready to support Donald Trump.

Whitman told NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1O1qFJd) that New Jersey Republicans should make a statement and vote for either Ohio Gov. John Kasich or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in next Tuesday’s primary.

Kasich and Cruz have both dropped out of the race but their names remain on the ballot.

Whitman is on the ballot as a delegate for Kasich.

She says that a protest vote will send a message and maybe change Trump “a little bit.”

Trump has already secured the delegates he needs for the Republican nomination.
