Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence made news yesterday when he said he ‘cannot defend’ Donald Trump’s ‘words and actions.’
That was in reference to the leaked tape that shows Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women.
Many Republicans in Congress have withdrawn their endorsement of Trump after hearing what his words from 2005.
Sen. John McCain is one of them.
Now, a CNN report claims Pence is considering dropping off the GOP ticket.
As the fallout from Trump’s comments began to take hold, Republican lawmakers who were distancing themselves from Trump also began saying they would vote for Pence.
Pence drew conservative applause for his standout performance in Tuesday night’s vice presidential debate, spurring talk of a 2020 run. But some Republicans don’t want to wait that long.
Pence canceled a public appearance in Wisconsin Saturday and blasted Trump in an extraordinary statement.
“I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them,” Pence said.
“The likely scenario, if there is one, is that Pence would become the nominee since he had already been nominated and voted on once. It’s not simple, but it is do-able,” CNN Republican delegate analyst Mike Shields told CNN’s Gloria Borger.
