Alaska Dispatch News: U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, in interview, said decision on Trump was 'instantaneous' after seeing video


Republican U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski spent months withholding her endorsement of or opposition to Donald Trump, the party's presidential nominee.

But on Saturday, Murkowski, who's running for re-election, condemned the GOP nominee, issuing a written statement that called for Trump to "step aside" and criticizing his crude comments about women that were made public in a video published Friday by the Washington Post.

Murkowski elaborated in an interview outside her Midtown Anchorage campaign office Saturday morning. She explained why she waited a day to respond (she was campaigning in the Southwest Alaska community of Dillingham on Friday) described her "disgust" when she saw the Post's video on an aide's phone, and talked about how her party was exploring whether Trump can be replaced on the ballot.
