McConnell Mum On Trump Following Second Debate Performance
The Senate's top Republican is keeping his mouth shut about the latest controversies engulfing Donald Trump. Mitch McConnell told a Chamber of Commerce audience Monday in his home state of Kentucky that "I don't have any observations to make" about the presidential election.
McConnell has endorsed Trump, but had called upon him to apologize after his crude comments about women in a 2005 videotape were revealed Friday.
McConnell said that he's keeping his own counsel. He said his observations "are immediately sort of spun around the world and I don't have anything to add on the presidential race today."
Senate Republicans are struggling to hold the chamber. Some GOP incumbents in tight races, such as Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, have rejected Trump.
