Congressman Scott Rigell (R-VA) becomes the first sitting congressman to say he will vote for Libertarian Gary Johnson for President. Read the Politico article here, published today. Quote from the article:

“I’ve always said I will not vote for Donald Trump and I will not vote for Hillary Clinton,” Rigell told the New York Times. “I’m going to vote for the Libertarian candidate.”

Rigell is not running for reelection, and says that if the Republican Party moves more in the ideological direction of Donald Trump, he may become an independent.
