"We have heard rumors about the insensitive and vulgar things Mr. Trump says about women," Granger wrote in a statement to the Texas Tribune.

The newly released tape of Trump making vulgar remarks about women sparked outrage on Friday, with many GOP lawmakers urging Trump to step down from the Republican ticket.
