WEST ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOV.com) -

West County Congresswoman Ann Wagner joined a growing list of Republicans dropping their support of Donald Trump for president.

Wagner issued a statement over the weekend. condemning "the predatory and reprehensible comments," that Trump made about women in 2005. 

"It took way too long," says Wagner's Congressional opponent Bill Otto. "It makes no sense to us that she would endorse somebody of Donald Trump's character or lack of character."

On Monday, Illinois Senator Mark Kirk, also seeking reelection, told Chicago radio station WBEZ, "The Trump disaster could cost us the  senate and the House."

In June, Kirk announced he would not support Trump.
