(10/10/16) - Lt. Governor Brian Calley has called on Donald Trump to drop out of the presidential race after his vulgar comments about women.

Calley says what Trump said makes it impossible to support him.

"I've got two daughters that I'm raising, about what they should expect in terms of how to be treated by other people and how to treat other people," Calley said.

Calley says he doesn't see Hillary Clinton as being a good example for his daughters either.

"It really is quite distressing to be in a position when I can't point to either of our presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, and say, ‘That's an example of how you ought to treat other people,’" Calley said.

Ballots have already been printed and some people have already voted, so it's too late to change candidates or start a write-in campaign, but Calley has been impressed with what he sees in vice presidential candidate Mike Pence.

"That's the type of leader I think America could really unite around," Calley said.

Congressman Dan Kildee, (D) Flint, was also bothered by Trump's lewd talk and thinks Clinton is the better choice.

"Obviously the comments that were revealed the other day were shocking, but it wasn't so shocking if you really pay attention to the things that he has said and he stood for so long," Kildee said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan is telling congressional Republicans that he won't defend Donald Trump now or in the future.
