RNC cuts ties with Roy Moore's fundraising agreement

RNC cuts ties with Roy Moore's fundraising agreement

Todd Young joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling on embattled Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the race. As of Monday, Brooks stood by Moore, telling AL.com, "America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago".

This came after few women stepped forward, saying Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the nation's top law-enforcement officer, said in testimony before Congress that he has no reason to doubt five women who have accused Moore of misconduct when they were in their teens. On Monday, a separate Alabama woman alleged Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a teenager, and described her experience at a news conference, represented by attorney Gloria Allred.

Moore characterized those allegations as politically motivated, and quipped during his Tuesday night speech that he's the "only one that can unite Democrats and Republicans, because I seem to be opposed by both".

The National Republican Senatorial Committee was the first to drop itself from the agreement, which benefits Moore's campaign, ending its participation last Friday, according to FEC filings. Nelson said Moore groped her, tried to pull her shirt off and shove her head in his lap, then warned that "no one will believe you" if she told anyone.




The Alabama Republican Party and Moore's official senatorial campaign are now the only two entities listed on the joint fundraising agreement.

"The Washington Post published another attack on my character and reputation because they are desperate to stop my political campaign".

Moore is running for Attorney General Jeff Sessions' old Senate seat, now occupied by Sen.

"As of today, with the information that's been introduced to me, and if these charges are not proven to be true, then I would continue to support and vote for Judge Moore", said Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill, R, in a Tuesday interview with CNN.
