(AP) — Nevada Gov. Brian Sandoval says he plans to vote for Donald Trump after fellow governor John Kasich and all other major Republican candidates dropped out of the presidential race.
The moderate Republican governor said Wednesday he doesn't agree with Trump on all the issues, but the Democratic nominee is "simply not an option."
Sandoval caucused for Marco Rubio and endorsed Kasich last month. Sandoval previously indicated he was wavering in his support for Trump if he became the nominee.
Republican elected officials have struggled on how to respond to the polarizing Trump. Sen. Dean Heller said he vehemently opposed some things Trump has said and believes he's alienated Hispanic voters, but was committed to opposing Hillary Clinton.
Senate candidate Rep. Joe Heck has said he'll support his party's nominee.
