Protesters gather ahead of Wisconsin vote

Legislative committee to vote on GAB audit

Protesters are gathering in the Wisconsin state Capitol ahead of a vote by members of the Electoral College to cast their ballots for president-elect Donald Trump.

Similar protests were being organized across the country as presidential electors gathered Monday to formally elect Trump. His opponents are trying to get at least 37 electors to break ranks nationally and not vote for Trump.

Wisconsin electors are set to vote for Trump at noon in the Capitol. Republican Party Chairman Brad Courtney says all 10 electors will be sticking by Trump.

He won the state by nearly 23,000 votes, becoming the first Republican presidential candidate to carry Wisconsin since 1984.
