It's getting harder to do a political story without involving the name Donald Trump.
While Republicans in Congress continue to abandon support for Trump's candidacy for President, Peoria Republican Darin LaHood is standing by him. His opponent, Democrat Junius Rodriguez is hoping to use that as political ammo to gain ground in the race.
Rodriguez labeled LaHood the last guardian of the political gutter during a Peoria news conference.
LaHood condemned remarks found in an eleven-year-old tape of Trump but continues to express support for his candidacy.
