The weekend release of a 2005 recording obtained by The Washington Post, where Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump talked about women in lewd and vulgar terms has brought condemnation from both sides of the political aisle. Locally, candidates for Wisconsin’s 1st Assembly seat weighed in. Republican Incumbent Joel Kitchens, who never endorsed Trump, says he was disgusted by Trump’s comments.
Democratic challenger Lynn Utesch says the remarks made by Trump are never acceptable on the political scale.
Trump apologized and said he was embarrassed by the released video during the presidential debate on Sunday night. Some Republican leaders have renounced their support and endorsements of Trump after the release.
