SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Utah Gov. Gary Herbert is unsure if he'll support presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Herbert told reporters at a press conference Wednesday that he hopes to speak with Trump and vet him. The governor said he and other delegates to the Republican Party convention in Ohio this summer will assess the candidates and make decisions then on how to proceed.

His uncertainty marks a change from March, when Herbert said he'd support Trump if he'd became the nominee.

Herbert's spokesman Jon Cox and campaign manager Marty Carpenter did not have details Wednesday if the governor would abstain from voting or consider supporting a third-party candidate.

The governor said Wednesday that he does not see himself voting for Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders.
