Phil Scott, the Governor of Vermont, and a chieftain of the Republican party, has revealed that he actually voted for the opposition presidential candidate, Joe Biden.
Scott said he had to choose country over party and voted for Democrat’s Joe Biden for president.
He became the first Republican Governor in the US to acknowledge voting for the opposition.
After casting his vote on Tuesday, the Republican governor told reporters in his hometown of Berlin, that this was the first time he ever voted for a Democrat in his life.
“As many of you knew, I didn’t support President Trump. I wasn’t going to vote for him,” Scott said.
“But then I came to the conclusion that it wasn’t enough for me to just not vote. I had to vote against.
“[I] put country over party, which again wasn’t an easy thing to do in some respects.”
