NRSC ends fundraising agreement with Roy Moore

NRSC ends fundraising agreement with Roy Moore

"The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling", said Colorado Sen.

In the immediate aftermath of the Washington Post's bombshell report that Moore had pursued relationships with four girls between the ages of 14 and 18 when he was in his early 30s, a slew of Republican senators came out with statements making clear that if the allegations were true, Moore needed to step out of the race.

Three other women said they had similar experiences with Moore when they were teenagers.

The Republican National Committee continues to be a part of the joint fundraising agreement with Moore's campaign and the Alabama Republican Party.

The question this poll can not really answer is the level of detail about the allegations against Moore that voters absorbed the day they were released - presumably not a lot of Alabamians read the Washington Post - and whether the sheer creepiness of Moore's reported conduct came through. Spokespeople for Cruz and Paul have not returned a request to comment from The Hill.

The Alabama lawmaker said Moore is a threat to "establishment" lawmakers on the national level, including in the Republican Party. After the Post story broke, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Moore "must step aside" ahead of the December 12 special election "if these allegations are true".

Several Republican legislators, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Sen. Even in Alabama, it is immoral and illegal for a 32-year-old man to initiate sexual contact with a minor.

"He's clean as a hound's tooth", Ziegler told the Washington Examiner, noting that the very old Zachariah and much younger Elizabeth produced John the Baptist.

But nationally, GOP leaders were less likely to defend Moore's actions and more likely to say the allegations were disturbing, without necessarily ruling on their veracity. Skipper said that he would still support the candidate and that he figured most of the Alabama Republicans he knew would probably do the same.

Incumbent U.S. Senator Luther Strange, who was appointed to the position, lost to Moore in the GOP primary runoff by nine percent.

Taking it a step further, Ziegler called Moore "clean as a hound's tooth" and cited the former judge's long and "wonderful" married life as proof of his good character.

CNN reported that it had spoken with Corfman's stepfather, who said the family "stands by" what was reported in The Post.

The accusations were made in a report in The Washington Post on Thursday. "We are in the midst of a spiritual battle with those who want to silence our message", Moore wrote in an email to his supporters. And Bannon is still backing him, a source close to the former White House chief strategist told NBC News.

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". In addition, Zeigler said that even if the allegation was true, it did not involve sexual intercourse. His campaign has called the report fake news.

As NPR reported last night, Moore, who was removed as Alabama's chief justice twice for his refusal to comply with federal court decisions, shows no signs of being inclined to leave the race.

"Herman Cain's going up in the polls, then the day he gets out - nothing", said Hannity, referring to a wave of 2011 sexual harassment relevations that sunk the Republican businessman's presdental bid.
