Kansas Republicans Standing by Trump

KSAL StaffOctober 14, 2016

Kansas congresswoman Lynn Jenkins and a fellow Republican candidate are not withdrawing previous endorsements of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump over sexual assault allegations against him.

Jenkins told The Associated Press on Thursday: “I’m not going to come out with a new statement on the presidential race every time a new headline hits the papers.”

The Republican seeking re-election in the 2nd District of eastern Kansas suggested there’s a “double standard” because Democrats aren’t asked whether they continue to support Hillary Clinton amid potentially damaging leaks of campaign emails.

Marshall said of Trump, “I’m giving him the same grace as I would give anybody.
