Senate Candidate Roy Moore Speaks Out During Campaign Appearance

Senate Candidate Roy Moore Speaks Out During Campaign Appearance

Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct with two teenagers when he was in a man in his 30s.

"I'm a Republican, but Roy Moore - no way", one voter says in the ad.

The Republican National Committee on Tuesday pulled out of a joint fundraising committee with Moore's campaign, according to a document filed with the Federal Election Commission.

Recently, the Washington Post reported that in 1979, when he was in his 30s, Moore had inappropriate sexual contact with a girl aged 14.

For almost a week, Alabama senate-nominee Roy Moore's sexual assault scandal has gripped the Republican Party, dividing top lawmakers amid the fierce public backlash.

"I believe the women", McConnell said. Trump has remained quiet while on an extended trip to Asia.

Others in the state said there is little that can be done, as the December 12 election to fill the seat vacated by Sessions approaches.

Under state law, Moore can not be removed from the ballot.

This item has been corrected to say that the December 12 election in Alabama is four weeks away.

Jones addressed the scandal Tuesday after a campaign stop in Birmingham. Some Republicans said they believe Sessions is reluctant to run but expressed hope that Trump - who's soured on him after he appointed a special prosecutor to investigate Trump's 2016 campaign's ties to Russian Federation - might urge him to run.

He said he'd continue to focus on issues important to Alabama voters and "let that play out over there".

That's the word from two Washington Republicans who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to publicly discuss the conversations. Speaking to reporters, McConnell said that he believed the accusations and said that Moore "should step aside" from the Senate race.

If anything, Maxwell's return provides the Dolphins with much-needed depth in the secondary for the second half of the season. Davis was signed from Seattle's practice squad, where the team placed him after claiming him on waivers in May.

Also possible is a write-in campaign, but national and Alabama Republicans consider that a longshot to succeed.

Party officials in Washington this week have ramped up efforts to get him to drop out, in hopes that a write-in candidate can save the seat for Republicans.

Rep. Jordan, however, has made no such statement. Speculation has centered on odd and the current USA attorney general, Jeff Sessions, as possibilities. But Sessions declined to say whether he thinks Moore should drop out of the race. On Monday, a fifth woman accused Moore, saying that he sexually assaulted her when she was 16.

McConnell praised Sessions Tuesday as a possible contender who is "totally well-known and is extremely popular in Alabama", but he conceded Sessions might not choose to run. Following The Post's report, other accusers have come forward with evidence of their ties with Moore.

Moore said he mentioned the call to a couple of members of the church and quickly realized that it didn't add up.

Moore has suggested that McConnell and other establishment Republicans were working in tandem with news media to discredit him.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday that he wanted to work with the White House to explore ways to keep embattled Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore from taking office if he wins a special election in Alabama.

The election is December 12.

Roy Moore's support from his fellow Republicans is hemorrhaging.

They were the latest blows to Moore's effort to win an open Senate seat that suddenly seems up for grabs.

But in NY, a tearful Beverly Young Nelson detailed an attack she says occurred when she was 16 years old and he locked her in a auto.

Marty Baron, executive editor of the The Washington Post, said that the caller's reporting methods bear "no relationship to reality".
