White House urges Moore to leave Senate race if sex allegations true

Roy Moore

Even if he were to drop out, his name would remain on the ballot, officials said.

"Zachariah and Elizabeth for instance".

So what would this do for Republicans?

Overall, however, Washington Republicans have very little leverage over Moore.

Democratic candidate Doug Jones stood to capitalize in places where Moore had shown weakness in past statewide elections. Luther Strange as a write-in candidate - would favor Jones with roughly 44% of the vote, followed by Moore at 41%, and Strange at 12%.

A spokesman for the state Democratic Party said Rep.

According to new paperwork filed with the Federal Election Commission Friday, the National Republican Senatorial Committee is no longer a part of a joint fundraising committee that includes Moore's campaign, the Alabama GOP and the Republican National Committee.

If you are wondering how Alabama voters are reacting to the explosive allegations of sexual misconduct involving minors against Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore, we have the first empirical evidence via a one-day poll conducted yesterday by Opinion Savvy for Decision Desk HQ.

The Alabama lawmaker said Moore is a threat to "establishment" lawmakers on the national level, including in the Republican Party.

Moore has called the accusations "garbage". Others said political considerations would likely be a priority over the accusations.

In an extensive report published Thursday, The Post detailed the allegations against Moore by the then-14-year-old and three other girls who were between the ages of 16 and 18 when they said the incidents occurred. All four women spoke on the record to the Post. He has denied the allegations in a written statement, and in an email to his supporters, he said he meant to stay in the Senate race to fight the "forces of evil". Why would women say these things if they are not true?

The NRSC and RNC did not immediately respond to CNN's request for comment Friday. Having the GOP tag off of Moore would make that easier to accomplish. The Trump administration too has distanced itself from the entire controversy.

Others, Democrats and Republicans alike, said that the nominee should step aside if the accusations have any truth behind them.

"I wanted it over with - I wanted out", she told the Post.

Republicans seem to be going around in circles on the "proven" point, which matters legally but not necessarily politically.

Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is telling potential donors in a new fundraising pitch that "the forces of evil are on the march in our country". Middle grounds don't usually provide profiles in courage, but it's better than nothing ...

Moore, at the time an assistant district attorney, asked for the girl's phone number and days later took her to his house, where they engaged in sexual activity before she asked to be taken home, Ms. Corfman said. "With Rand Paul ailing and Bob Corker and Jeff Flake wavering, Republicans already were worrying that Mike Pence might have to break a tie vote on a tax bill". Senators like Mitch McConnell, Lisa Murkowski, and Ted Cruz called for him to step aside if the allegations are true. If Lee has changed his mind about Moore, he's been awfully quiet about it. Disgraced House speaker Denny Hastert got convicted for abuse that didn't come to light for decades, recall, but also note that there have been false allegations of sexual abuse in politics, too.
