PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona's 11 Electoral College voters have each been inundated with tens of thousands of emails, hundreds of letters and untold numbers of phone calls urging them not to cast their ballots for president-elect Donald Trump.
 
They say the anti-Trump effort is wasting their time.
 
Phoenix homebuilder and elector Ed Robson says he got a "a stack of letters from idiots."
 
The state's electors are all Republicans because Trump won the Arizona election with 49 percent of the vote compared to Democrat Hillary Clinton's 45 percent.
 
They were picked by the state party and will gather Monday to formally cast their votes.
 
The Associated Press interviewed eight of the 11 and those who responded say they're sure the Arizona vote will be unanimous for Trump.
