GRAND RAPIDS (AP) – Gov. Rick Snyder says the presidential election is a “huge mess” and Republican nominee Donald Trump’s “revolting and disgusting” comments about women could pose challenges for Republicans on Michigan’s ballot.

The Republican governor hasn’t endorsed Trump. But he acknowledged Thursday after Grand Rapids event that Trump’s problems may “make it a more challenging environment” for Republican candidates.

Trump is denying new reports of inappropriate sexual behavior less than a week after the publication of a 2005 recording in which he boasted of using his fame to kiss and grab women without their consent.

Snyder says he’s focused on helping Republicans keep control of the Michigan House.

Some Michigan Republicans — such as Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and U.S. Reps. Fred Upton and Justin Amash — say Trump’s candidacy should end.

  1. Trust me Michigan Republicans have already shot themselves in the foot with the games they have been trying to pull off in Lansing. Get them resumes ready and prepare to get a real job!

  2. Nancy Besser says:

    It is so obvious a smear tactic by the democrats and news media against Trump just few weeks left before elections. Really Governor Snyder is no one to speak with his Flint crisis. Who is he to judge when he did what he did in Flint with the water So Trump is standing up to corruption, exposing the corruption of the Media and Obama administration and Hillary Clinton and Democrats . He may not be perfect but he is sure better then the lying corrupt democrats running the white house now and wanting to run the white house.
