Raleigh, N.C. — North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory joined a growing list of Republicans Friday night when he condemned presidential nominee Donald Trump over his lewd comments about women.
"I condemn in the strongest possible terms the comments made by Donald Trump regarding women. I find them disgusting," McCrory said in a statement.
Trump was caught on tape in 2005 making crude comments about a married woman he tried to seduce and what he could do to women because he was "a star."
Trump apologized for his remarks in a video released Saturday morning, but he also called the audio "nothing more than a distraction" and argued that his words were not nearly as egregious as former President Bill Clinton's marital affairs.
McCrory did not say Saturday whether Trump's comments will make him pull support for the Republican nominee's run for the White House.
