The Latest: Missouri electors met with cheers, criticism



     (AP) – Missouri’s electors who voted for President-elect

Donald Trump have received a mixed response from onlookers.

     Supporters in the Capitol clapped and cheered when the state’s 10 electors all

cast their ballots for Trump.

     An opponent in the crowded Senate Lounge called out “justice for all” after

the vote took place. A woman in response told the man to “get over it.”

     The votes for Trump were expected, although opponents looking to block the

president-elect from taking office had hoped some electors would change their

minds.

     Dozens of protesters had turned out with signs asking electors to vote their

conscience.

     After the vote, the Capitol quickly fell silent. It was mostly quiet in an

overflow room of spectators. One man shook his head in disappointment.
