HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Donald Trump is saying he will not quit the race for president. 
    
The GOP nominee told the Washington Post Saturday, "I'd never withdraw. I've never withdrawn in my life."
    
He also spoke to the Wall Street Journal, saying there was "zero chance" he'd quit. 
    
The comments come as many Republican officials call on him to leave the race after a video surfaced Friday showing him making vulgar and sexually graphic comments about women.

Trump said, however, he's been getting calls of support.

Mississippi Congressional candidate Mark Gladney said he's not shocked by Trump's comments.

The Democratic candidate for the 4th Congressional District said Trump's attitude towards women shows he would not be a good leader. 

"The best predictor of future performance is past performance," said Gladney. "Knowing that and when you hear things like this come out, you're just saying, 'well this is just one more example of why he shouldn't be president.'"

Gladney will face Republican incumbent Steven Palazzo in the November 8 general election. 

Gladney was in Hattiesburg Saturday, campaigning at the Historic Mobile Street Renaissance Festival.
