That was, until Friday.
With Trump’s remarks about women coming to light ― comments that, more than just being vulgar, suggest Trump has made unwanted sexual advances on women ― there seems to be a real turn in this election.
Already, five House Republicans have either withdrawn their endorsement or called on Trump to drop out of the race: Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.), Rep. Barbara Comstock (R-Va.), Rep. Martha Roby (R-Ala.) and Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah).
Now that those members have taken a stand, there could be other Republicans who feel the need to revoke their support. Which is not to say those Republicans can just escape the Trump taint.
As another DCCC spokesman, Tyler Law, said early Saturday after news that vulnerable Coffman was calling on Trump to abandon his presidential bid, “this political charade changes nothing.”
