GNAW BONE, Ind. - Indiana Republicans are angered, disgusted by Donald Trump’s “beyond offensive” lewd audio comments about women from 2005. But not one - not Gov. Mike Pence, Lt. Gov. Eric Holcomb, U.S. Senate nominee Todd Young or the congressional delegation - are ready to say they won’t vote for the self-destructing nominee.

Gov. Mike Pence said in a statement on Saturday, “I do not condone his remarks and cannot defend them. We pray for his family and look forward to the opportunity he has to show what is in his heart when he goes before the nation tomorrow night.” But later in Rhode Island, Pence told state chairman Brandon Bell he was prepared to stay the course. “He looked me in the eye and he said, ‘Don’t worry, we’re going to get through this, we’re going to be OK,’” Bell told WPRI-TV. “So he didn’t address it head on, but he wanted to reassure people, the folks that were here – and I think he’s going to do this publicly in the next coming days – that we shouldn’t worry, that they’re still on a path to victory.”

Democratic Senate nominee Evan Bayh spokesman Dan Parker press Young to take a different course. “Congressman Todd Young was hesitant to stand up to Donald Trump as he attacked women, Gold Star families, veterans, people with disabilities and even a Hoosier federal judge,” Parker said. “But now that Trump is hurting him politically, he is suddenly rushing to call Trump 'offensive.' Not only is it not enough, it's politics at its most cynical. Voters deserve to know that you can stand up to your party when they are wrong. Congressman Young has proven once and for all he will do anything if it's good for Todd Young, but won't stand up for Hoosier families."

The Young campaign responded with the Bloomington Republican telling HPI, “I think Donald Trump's terrible comments were beyond offensive." But Young did not call for Trump to step down.

Republican gubernatorial nominee Eric Holcomb said, ”The actions and comments made by Donald Trump in the video released yesterday are offensive and unacceptable. While I have not made a final decision, my vote and support of any candidate should never be taken for granted."

U.S. Rep. Susan Brooks said, “Donald Trump's words and the actions he described are reprehensible and disrespectful, and I am personally disgusted by this behavior. This is nowhere near the conduct Americans should expect from someone seeking the office of President." And U.S. Sen. Dan Coats said, "Donald Trump's vulgar comments are totally inappropriate and disgusting, and these words have no place in our society. We must affirm that women deserve respect and honor."

All have either endorsed Trump or have said they will vote for the Republican nominee.

"Donald Trump's words were wrong," U.S. Rep. Luke Messer, the fifth ranked House Republican, said in a statement to the Muncie Star Press. "Period. He must know they were wrong, because he quickly apologized … a rare occurrence in Trump world. My hope is he will do more to explain how he may have changed in the 10 years since these disturbing and disrespectful comments were made."
