Republican U.S. Senator Rob Portman of Ohio rescinded his endorsement of GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump late Saturday night, joining a growing list of party members withdrawing support and calling for him to drop out of the race. This comes after the release of a 2005 video showing Trump making vulgar and sexually aggressive comments about women.
