ELKHORN, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's top Republicans are sticking by Donald Trump while they also denounce newly released lewd comments he made about women 11 years ago.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, Sen. Ron Johnson and Gov. Scott Walker are among the Republicans who are scheduled to appear at a unity rally Saturday afternoon in Ryan's southeast Wisconsin congressional districts. All three condemned Trump on Friday night for the comments, but none withdrew their support.
Trump was originally set to appear at the annual "Fall Fest" event, which would have been his first joint campaign stop with either Ryan or Johnson. But he canceled Friday night, saying he's preparing for Sunday's debate. His running mate Mike Pence is to speak instead.
Trump apologized via video on Friday for the vulgar and sexually charged comments.
