Ohio’s Republican Auditor has released a Facebook post saying he will not support his party's current presidential frontrunner. 

Auditor Dave Yost says Donald Trump wants power that he will use at the expense of the good of the country. Yost says he’s already getting hate messages over his Facebook post saying he won't support Trump. And Yost says he won’t be able to go to the national convention in Cleveland this summer if Trump wins the nomination.

“At some point, though you have to not follow the polls and follow your conscience and speak your heart and that’s what I’m trying to do.”

Yost says 90% of the delegates for the nomination remain to be chosen.
