Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) who is facing a close re-election battle this November said that Trump’s predatory comments about how he seduced women, which were caught in a 2005 video, were “inappropriate.”

“The comments are inappropriate and completely unacceptable,” Burr said, according to a tweet from a Politico reporter.

Burr joined fellow Sens. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) as well as Mark Kirk (R-IL) in distancing himself from the comments. All three lawmakers are locked in close re-elections.
