Darryl Glenn says he will vote for Trump, according to audio obtained by CNN

Republican Senate candidate Darryl Glenn has been back and forth on his support for Donald Trump since the nation got to hear audio of the presidential candidate bragging about groping women, but on Friday, he told a closed-door meeting of business leaders that he will vote for Trump.

CNN’s KFile obtained audio from the Friday forum with Colorado Concern.

Glenn said he would be voting for Trump but not “endorsing” him.

“So where I’m at right now is that I absolutely will be supporting the Republican platform and voting for Mr. Trump,” Glenn said. “I will not be personally endorsing Mr. Trump and there is a clear distinction. When I personally endorse you that means I know your heart, I know your character and I can personally attest to that and I can not. If that changes we can revisit that, when it comes to evaluating the policies of what we’re going to be able to do with regard to weighing the Republican policy platform versus the Democrats, it is not even a choice. I will be voting for the Republican ticket and Republican candidates.”

Glenn was the last of the three Colorado Republicans — after Rep. Mike Coffman and Sen. Cory Gardner — to withdraw support for Trump. When he did so, he called Trump “simply disqualified” to be president, but after the second presidential debate, he said Trump gave a sincere apology and he might yet endorse him.

At a debate with his Democratic opponent Sen. Michael Bennet, Glenn again cast forgiving Trump as an important part of his Christian faith, even as he said his endorsement was “suspended.”
