MADISON, Wis. (AP) --   Wisconsin's 10 Electoral College votes have been cast for the statewide winner Donald Trump.
   The 10 Republican electors cast their ballots at a meeting Monday in the state Capitol. Dozens of protesters gathered ahead of the meeting, trying to convince them to break with the law and tradition and cast their ballot for someone other than the statewide winner.
   Trump won 306 electoral votes, 36 more than the 270 he needed to become president. It would take 37 electors nationwide who are bound to Trump breaking ranks to prevent him from becoming president next month.
   Efforts were underway across the country to try and sway electors not to vote for Trump.
   But in Wisconsin, all 10 electors stood by Trump. He won the statewide vote by nearly 23,000 votes.
