Republicans are meeting in private today to discuss what to do about the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, who in last night’s second presidential debate dismissed recorded comments about groping women as “locker room talk.”

Trump’s running mate Mike Pence defended Trump on morning television shows and denied rumors he’s dropping off the ticket.

NPR’s Ron Elving joins Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson to discuss an extraordinary weekend in politics.
