WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Republican leaders continue to distance themselves from Donald Trump, following the release of a 2005 video that revealed demeaning comments toward women. That list now includes Oregon's only Republican Congressman. 


U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) says he will not defend the GOP Presidential nominee for his comments, nor will he campaign for Trump. Oregon's top Republican, Congressman Greg Walden, condemned Trump's comments about women. He says they were disrespectful, disgusting and not representative of the Republican Party. 


Walden says that while some aren't surprised by Trump's behavior, it's clear that he, and he alone, is responsible for his actions and statements. In the statement issued this week, Walden continues that his focus is on serving Oregonians and maintaining a Republican majority in the U.S. House.
