SC state senator on Trump: "I think that he is the best choice."

Despite the new trouble Donald Trump is now facing in his bid for President, one South Carolina lawmaker spoke out on her decision to continue to support him.

Republican State Senator Katrina Shealy of Lexington County took to her Facebook page on Tuesday saying she still intends to vote for Trump in November. This comes after a recently leaked video showed Trump back in 2005 making lewd comments about women. In that video the GOP nominee bragged about making unwelcome sexual advances on women that included kissing and touching.

Shealy said while she was appalled by what Trump said in the video, it has not altered her view that he is the most qualified to be the next President.
"I don't think that was ever intended to be a public, ya know? Something you would say to a woman in public, or something he would say to young girls," Shealy said, "there's a lot of women that still support Donald Trump regardless."
The Trump campaign did take a big hit when the leaked video appeared. The most recent polls currently show him still trailing Hillary Clinton with likely voters.
