Terry Lathan isn’t prepared to bail on Donald Trump.

The Alabama Republican Party chairwoman issued a statement on Monday following the second presidential debate saying that her support for the Republican presidential nominee is not wavering despite recent release of his lewd conduct caught on tape 11 years ago.

“The last 60 hours have been very unconventional in a presidential election,” said Lathan in the statement. “The 11-year-old leaked Trump tape had reprehensible words, and even worse, a disrespectful and juvenile attitude toward women. No on can or will defend this type of lewd conduct.”

Lathan continued, “Mr. Trump has apologized for this behavior and called his own words ’embarrassing.’ He is correct. He also has said that’s not the type of person he is now. This is a very teachable moment for him as well as ourselves.”

While Lathan does not condone his crude comments, she says voters backed Trump knowing his style and past.

“Donald Trump is the Republican nominee that our primary voters chose, in record-breaking numbers, fully aware of his past and style,” explained Lathan. “He is also the one person to stop Hillary Clinton and halt the liberal erosion of our nation.”

While Lathan is hopeful of female president in the future, she does not believe Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is the right person for the job.

“We must protect America’s future with President Donald Trump,” continued Lathan. “I am a woman who looks forward to the day a woman is president of our beloved nation, but not Hillary Clinton. Voting for a person to make a cultural statement rather than a policy statement is dangerous. Not this time, Mrs. Clinton. Never Hillary!”

Lathan’s comment come after several prominent Alabama Republicans have pulled their support from Trump, including Gov. Robert Bentley along with Alabama 1st District U.S. Congressman Bradley Byrne, and Alabama 2nd District U.S. Congresswoman Martha Roby.

Read Lathan’s full statement below:

The last sixty hours have been very unconventional in a presidential election. The eleven year old leaked Trump tape had reprehensible words, and even worse, a disrespectful and juvenile attitude toward women. No on can or will defend this type of lewd conduct.

Mr. Trump has apologized for this behavior and called his own words ’embarrassing’. He is correct. He also has said that’s not the type of person he is now. This is a very teachable moment for him as well as ourselves.

This is also a wake up call for America to look in the mirror at the erosion of our culture. We need to ask ourselves what we can do to end the bitter divisiveness in our beloved nation. How can we find much needed common ground for Reagan’s ‘shining city on a hill’? She’s still there, but she’s a bit tarnished and needs polishing by her owners — “We, the people.”

It’s time to choose a direction for America. It is imperative that we look ahead to envision what a United States Supreme Court would look like with liberal Hillary Clinton judges. As mentioned by Mr. Trump in his strong debate performance, we must defend our second amendment rights, have a get tough foreign policy, stand strong against crime, enforce our immigration laws, lower our taxes, reign in the power of a runaway government and stop the spiraling out of control cost of Obamacare from crushing our families.

Our votes will choose the direction we are about to take. The stroke of our pens will decide if we continue the liberal path or change directions. With the fragile balance of the Supreme Court awaiting our decision, there is a clear choice for a conservative America. Donald Trump is the Republican nominee that our primary voters chose, in record breaking numbers, fully aware of his past and style. He is also the one person to stop Hillary Clinton and halt the liberal erosion of our nation.

We must protect America’s future with President Donald Trump. I am a woman who looks forward to the day a woman is president of our beloved nation, but not Hillary Clinton. Voting for a person to make a cultural statement rather than a policy statement is dangerous. Not this time, Mrs. Clinton. Never Hillary!
