Haslam calls on Trump to drop out

Local members of Tennessee's congressional delegation did not join top Republican leaders in calling for Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race Saturday after a video surfaced of him making disturbing, lewd comments about women in 2005.

U.S. Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., said the comments Trump made about groping women "are obviously very inappropriate and offensive" and he is dismayed at the presidential campaign this year, but he stopped short of rescinding his endorsement of Trump.

Instead he said he is now trying to figure the best way forward in this year's election cycle.
