DETROIT (AP) — A Republican member of the Electoral College from Michigan has created a website urging Donald Trump supporters to rally electors around the president-elect.

Brian Fairbrother, deputy clerk for the Detroit suburb of Shelby Township, launched ElectorsforTrump.com this week. Fairbrother says he and fellow electors have been deluged with missives from people urging them to vote for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton or another Republican.

Fairbrother tells The Associated Press he’s received “thousands” of emails and letters. He doesn’t believe any of the writers supported Trump.

Michigan law mandates electors vote according to the results of the state’s presidential election. Trump won Michigan by .2 percentage points.

One Texas elector recently reversed his pledge to support Trump. Another resigned rather than vote for him.

Electors convene Dec. 19 to vote for president.

    It makes me sick the way the Democrats are still trying to put Trump out … We the people of this United States have voted and wish to see it through as Trump being our President. Please hear our voices….
