Claims that other Senate Republicans are distancing themselves from Trump was panned by Senate Majority Whip John Thune, a South Dakota Republican.

Thune noted that Trump’s debate performance on Thursday night will also play into how well Republican lawmakers in tight races do in key states on Election Day.
