GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence will no longer attend a campaign event on Saturday with House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), according to reports.

Ryan was originally scheduled to appear with Donald Trump, but Trump was dropped from the event in the wake of the Washington Post publishing leaked audio of Trump making vulgar comments about women in 2005.

Pence was supposed to attend in his running mate’s place. But the Indiana governor is “not going to the Wisconsin GOP event today,” according to NBC News.

{mosads}Pence decided himself not to attend the event and was not uninvited by Ryan, according to a Politico reporter.

Trump’s campaign is under siege from Republicans on Saturday in the wake of the leaked audio. Four GOP senators have called for him to leave the party’s presidential ticket, another said she won’t vote for him, and two House members unendorsed him.
