RGA Chair­wo­man and New Mex­ico Gov. Susana Mar­tinez (R) “said Sat­urday she will not sup­port Don­ald Trump for pres­id­ent after a leaked 2005 video­tape showed the Re­pub­lic­an pres­id­en­tial nom­in­ee boast­ing about kiss­ing and grop­ing wo­men without con­sent.”

Mar­tinez: “What Trump brags about is ap­palling and com­pletely un­ac­cept­able. … No wo­man should ever be treated the way he claims he treated wo­men. Un­for­tu­nately, there is a pat­tern of dis­turb­ing con­duct and of­fens­ive rhet­or­ic that raises ser­i­ous ques­tions about his fit­ness to be Pres­id­ent. That’s why I have with­held my sup­port from the very be­gin­ning, and will not sup­port him now.” (Al­buquerque Journ­al)
