As House Speaker Paul Ryan on Monday announced in a conference call he would no longer defend Donald Trump’s presidential bid and focus on retaining the GOP’s majority, Republican Rep. Tom Reed insisted he would remain a supporter of the party’s nominee.

Still, in a statement released this afternoon, Reed reiterated Trump’s lewd remarks from a 2005 video “are just plain wrong and I will not defend them.”

“However, a Hillary Clinton presidency is unacceptable,” Reed said.

“As said last night, she is looking for a liberal Supreme Court to enact her agenda. She demonstrated extreme recklessness regarding classified information and risking American lives simply for her own personal convenience. Most troublesome she arrogantly believes she can publicly state one thing while privately carrying out a different agenda. We have to change the DC establishment – so I continue supporting Donald Trump as an outsider who will shake up DC.”

Reed, first elected in 2010, faces Democrat John Plumb for the Southern Tier-area congressional seat.
