LAS VEGAS (AP) -

Nevada Republican Reps. Joe Heck, Cresent Hardy and Gov. Brian Sandoval say they're rescinding their endorsements of Donald Trump, a day after lewd comments from their party's presidential nominee came to light.

Heck said at a rally Saturday in Las Vegas that he can no longer look past Trump's pattern of behavior and comments, but also can't vote for Hillary Clinton.

Sandoval released a statement Saturday saying in part, "This video exposed not just words, but now an established pattern which I find to be repulsive and unacceptable for a candidate for President of the United States."

They are the latest in a string of elected Republicans to abandon Trump in light of vulgar comments were recorded while Trump spoke to the then-host of "Access Hollywood" in 2005. Trump said he apologized if anyone was offended.

Heck is in a competitive race for the seat of retiring Democratic Sen. Harry Reid. Hardy is in a tough race for re-election in a Democratic-leaning district.
