TEWKSBURY — Donald Trump may have locked up the Republican presidential nomination, but one of the state’s most prominent GOP leaders is urging the party faithful to vote against him in next week’s New Jersey primary.

Former Gov. Christie Whitman, a two-term Republican governor, said Republicans should make a statement and cast a protest vote for Ohio Gov. John Kasich or U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz in the June 7 primary.

“I hope voters will express what they feel. Don’t be steamrolled into thinking you have to be for Donald Trump because he’s now locked up the nomination,” Whitman said in an interview at her Hunterdon County farm Friday.
