Gov. Mike Pence “will no longer be attending a Saturday campaign event in Wisconsin with House Speaker Paul Ryan,” Politico reports.
“Donald Trump was slated to attend the event but was dropped Friday evening after a leaked tape revealed the GOP nominee making crude comments about sexually harassing women.…”
A top Pence advisor says Pence was not disinvited but “decided not to go of his own accord.”
Pence told CNN in a statement that he cannot defend Trump’s remarks.
A source close to Trump campaign tells the Washington Post that Pence and his team are “absolutely apoplectic,” “melting down” and “inconsolable.”
