TN Gov. Haslam calls on Trump to quit

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam is calling on Donald Trump to step down as the party's presidential nominee for his newly released remarks about his aggressive treatment of women.
   The Republican issued a statement Sunday calling on Trump to remove himself and clear the way for Trump running mate Mike Pence to face Democrat Hillary Clinton next month.
   He says the character of the nation's leaders does matter, adding, "the decisions that are made in the Oval Office have too many consequences to ignore the behavior we have seen" from Trump. Haslam never endorsed Trump.
   Trump has said he has no plans to quit. Haslam said if that's the case, he plans to vote for a write-in candidate for president from the Republican Party.
