INDIANAPOLIS – U.S. Senate candidate Todd Young said Saturday he’s unsure whether he will vote for Donald Trump after video surfaced Friday of the Republican presidential nominee bragging about groping and trying to have sex with women, which was captured on an open microphone during a 2005 conversation with Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush.
“Terrible comments,” Young said in an interview with CBS4 Saturday, the Republican congressman in a tight race against Democrat Evan Bayh. “I think every Hoosier agrees they’re highly offensive and inappropriate. And with respect to my support, it’s a very serious question and I’m giving it very serious consideration.”
When asked if he will vote for Trump, Young said, “I’m not sure yet” quickly adding “I do know I won’t be voting for Hillary Clinton.”
Young praised Pence’s job on the ticket, who issued a statement Saturday, which said he was “offended by the words and actions described by Donald Trump.”
“My advice to Donald Trump is quite simple,” Young said. “I would advise him to listen more to Mike Pence as he works his way through this and explains.”
