U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan calls for Trump to end presidential campaign #CAPnews

In this file photo, U.S. Rep. Pat Meehan, R-7, speaks to cadets at Valley Forge Military Academy & College. The Delco congressman is now calling for Donald Trump to end his presidential campaign. 
Meehan, reacting to a leaked 11-year-old interview with Trump where he talked inappropriately about women, said Trump is “not the right leader” for the Republican Party.
“Millions of Americans oppose Hillary Clinton’s liberal, progressive agenda, but it’s clear that Donald Trump is not the right leader for the fight against it,” Meehan said in the interview.
“For the good of the country, the Republican Party, and his family, I hope he’ll step aside and end his candidacy for president so that we can come together as a party and defeat Hillary Clinton,” Meehan said.
Many GOP lawmakers and candidates have moved to distance themselves from Trump once the tape was released.
Meehan, who is running for re-election against Democrat Mary Ellen Balchunis in the November election, 
has been silent about Trump until Saturday night.
“This sort of vile talk is appalling, it’s offensive, and there’s no place in public or private for it. It’s simply wrong.”
Meehan has represented Pennsylvania’s 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives since 2011.
