Local Republicans speak up about controversial Trump comments

“I think the entire focus of the national media has been to try to talk about these side issues,” said Congressman Trent Kelly.

Many made it very clean on Monday night that they don’t agree with what Trump said, but it has not changed the way they will vote.

“What I am interested in is what Trump is doing right now,” said Chandler. “That is all I am interested in.”

“You know I continue to hold the same position I have had on him,” Kelly said. “It is unfortunate he made some of the remarks he did 11 years ago, but that being said it has not changed the way I feel. I still think he is a much better candidate than Hillary Clinton who has repetitively done illegal and immoral acts, she has shown she is not fit to be president.”
