Colorado Republican Senator Cory Gardner released a statement on Twitter Saturday afternoon, tell Donald Trump to "step aside."

Gardner says the only way to defeat Hillary Clinton, is for Trump to allow Mike Pence to become the party's nominee. He also said he will not vote for Trump.

Read the full statement below:

"Millions of Americans are set to choose between two people to lead this nation. One candidate is a danger to our constitution, freedoms and security, who would sell our national security to the highest bidder and finalize the destruction of the rule of law. The other - a candidate whose flaws are beyond mere moral shortcomings and who shows a disgust for American character and a disdain for dignity unbecoming of the Presidency. I cannot and will not support someone who brags about degrading and assaulting women.
"I am committed to defeating Hillary Clinton. The only way this is now possible is with a new nominee that reflects the values of our country and our party. I will not vote for Donald Trump. If Donald Trump wishes to defeat Hillary Clinton, he should do the only thing that will allow us to do so - step aside, and allow Mike Pence to be the Republican party's nominee. If he fails to do so, I will not vote for Hillary Clinton but will instead write-in my vote for Mike Pence."
