Top Republicans raced Friday to denounce GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump for a 2005 video released by the Washington Post of Trump engaged in a vulgar conversation about groping and attempting to seduce women.
In the hours after the video appeared, top Republicans denounced the comments, and some renounced the candidate as well.

Donald Trump's statements are beyond offensive & despicable. While I cannot vote for Hillary Clinton, I will not vote for Trump. #utpol— Gary R. Herbert (@HerbertForUtah) October 8, 2016
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who declined to endorse Trump at the Republican National Convention but ultimately did so late last month, denounced the comments as well.
These comments are disturbing and inappropriate, there is simply no excuse for them.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) October 8, 2016
