State's 13th District Representative Withdraws Support For Trump

Another Illinois Congressman withdrew his support for Donald Trump after the release of a video containing Trump’s lewd comments about women.  

Republican Rodney Davis represents the state’s 13th district and says he came to the decision after talking to his wife Saturday.  

"My wife and I decided that this was something that we could not continue to tell our kids that language that was used in that video was acceptable enough for presidential candidates, let alone anyone."

Davis hopes Trump withdraws from the race, in which case he would support vice presidential candidate Mike Pence.  If Trump remains on the ballot, Davis says he will either write someone in, or leave his vote blank.
