After a tape in which Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump makes offensive comments about women was released on Friday, some of Colorado’s Republican congressional delegation, including U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner, withdrew support.
But many of the state’s leading Republican women are apparently still on board with Trump regardless of the fact that he bragged about his unsolicited sexual advances.
Among the most enthusiastic of Colorado’s female Trump supporters is Otero County Republican Chair Judy Reyher, who exclaimed “YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” on a Facebook post suggesting Trump’s 11-year-old comments don’t matter.
She also made this comment in response to a post praising U.S. Senate candidate Darryl Glenn for calling on Trump to drop out of the race (he has since backpedaled from his denunciation).
State Sen. Vicki Marble (R-Ft. Collins) appears to be sticking with Trump based on her Facebook activity. She joined Reyher in suggesting Trump shouldn’t be judged for his remarks.
She also joined in on praising him for his debate performance on Sunday.
Colorado State Sen. Laura Woods (R-Arvada) also appears to still be on team Trump after liking a post in which State Sen. Ray Scott (R-Grand Junction) announced he’d still support his party’s presidential candidate.
El Paso County Commissioner Peggy Littleton joined Woods in liking the post.
State Rep. Lois Landgraf (R-Fountain) posted this on Facebook following the scandal. Although it doesn’t necessarily confirm she’s sticking with Trump, we can infer that she will vote for her party’s nominee based on her desire for a conservative Supreme Court justice.
Neither Landgraf nor Littleton immediately returned a call to comment.
