Party Before Country? Which Republican Senators Still Support Trump

Party Before Country? Which Republican Senators Still Support Trump October 8, 2016

In a normal election, you’d think that a video of a Presidential candidate talking about sexual assault would fatal for the candidate’s campaign. But this election cycle has been anything but normal. So, with Trump’s campaign in crisis, I thought it would be interesting to maintain a roll call of which Republican Senators have said enough is enough and will no longer support Trump. I intend to update this table as new information becomes available.

Most of the information in the initial version of this post came from The Atlantic.
