A Texas Republican elector is resigning over the election of Donald Trump, saying he cannot "in good conscience" vote for the president-elect.

The elector, Art Sisneros of Dayton, detailed his decision in a blog post Saturday titled "Conflicted Elector in a Corrupt College" that said he believed voting for Trump "would bring dishonor to God." The remaining 537 members of the Electoral College will choose Sisneros' replacement when they convene Dec. 19 in state capitals across the country. 

Sisneros previously said he was wavering on supporting Trump because the Republican "is not biblically qualified for office."
