Utah’s Gov. Gary Herbert and Rep. Jason Chaffetz Revoke Support for Trump

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) revoked their support of Donald Trump after The Washington Post released a tape from 2005 containing lewd remarks Trump made about women, according to KUTV.

“Donald Trump’s statements are beyond offensive & despicable,” Herbert stated. “While I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton, I will not vote for Trump.”

“I’m out,” Chaffetz stated on CNN Friday night. “I can no longer endorse Donald Trump for president. There’s no possible way I’d vote for Hillary Clinton.”

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-OH) also commented on the remarks, but didn’t announce any withdrawal of support.

“Mr. Trump’s comments were offensive and disgusting,” Hatch stated. “There is no excuse for such degrading behavior. All women deserve to be treated with respect.”

Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) described Trump’s remarks as “disappointing and disgusting.”

Last month, a Salt Lake Tribune poll showed Trump leading Clinton by nine points in Utah.
