Appearing on a CNN segment over a battleground Colorado district that is seeing the GOP incumbent fighting an uphill battle to hold onto his seat, two former Republican voters said they have abandoned the party over President Donald Trump and will vote a straight Democrat ticket in November.
Speaking with CNN correspondent Dana Bash, Colorado 6th District voters John and Meredith (last name unclear) said that they were Republicans but left the party out of disgust with Trump.
“There are some Democrats I like and some Republicans I like, but I am pretty much voting all blue,” explained Meredith who claims she re-registered as an independent while acknowledging it would be a protest vote.
According to John, he is leaning Republican and admits he likes the incumbent, Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO), but “my disappointment in the president is so much I might vote down the line against Republicans.”
“You might do that?” Bash asked.
“I might,” he replied.

‘It’s BS’: Former federal prosecutor nails Trump’s lie promising he wanted to testify to defend himself
While the Senate voted on whether or not to allow a break to adjourn without dealing with the amendments to Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-KY) impeachment rules, former federal prosecutor Preet Bharara called out the lies from President Donald Trump.
One video that the House kept playing was the comment from Trump that he would love to testify and would love if his staff testified on his behalf as well. Presumably, the president would want to defend himself before the American people and explain what really happened. Instead, all the White House has agreed to turn over is a stack of redacted documents and only as a result of a Freedom of Information Act request by a third party. Congress didn't enjoy the benefit of getting anything requested.
Senate Republicans unanimously vote to keep their heads in the sand
Senate Republicans held fast on Tuesday and roundly rejected Democrats' attempts to subpoena testimony and documents from the Trump administration as part of the president's impeachment trial.
While the House impeachment managers, led by Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff (D-CA), made repeated and compelling arguments for the Senate to obtain evidence at the start of President Donald Trump's trial, votes for subpoenas all fell out the same way. All 47 Democrats in the Senate voted in favor of the subpoenas, while all 53 Republicans opposed.
What did Ukraine know and when did they know it? Trump lawyer tells another whopper at Senate trial
President Donald Trump's legal team played fast and loose with the truth on the first day of the impeachment trial, at one point claiming falsely that no Republicans were allowed into the classified information facilities during the House impeachment proceedings.
Michael Purpura one of the president's lawyers, lied again later that evening, claiming the Ukrainians had no knowledge that the Trump administration froze military aid at the time Trump pressed President Volodymyr Zelensky to announce an investigation of former Vice President Joe Biden's family.
