The Republican majority leader with the Senate, urged Moore to abandon the struggle for a post of the Senator from Alabama
The Republican majority leader in the Senate Mitch McConnell on Monday called on Republican Roy Moore to abandon the struggle for a post of the Senator from Alabama in connection with the allegations of sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl 40 years ago when 32-year-old Moore held the post of the local Prosecutor.
McConnell previously said that Moore should withdraw his candidacy if charges are justified. Now, however, he said he believes the story Whether Curfman harassment by Moore in 1979, and the testimony of three other women, who said that he tried to engage them in sexual relations when they were teenagers. The material on this was published in the Washington Post.
“I believe that he should withdraw his candidacy,” said McConnell, speaking to reporters in Louisville.
According to McConnell, Republicans should try to win scheduled for December 12 by-elections by adding a new candidate, perhaps the Senator Luther, Strange that Moore was ahead in the primaries.
However, the introduction of the ballot, a new candidate may be complicated by the fact that Moore’s name already printed on the ballot for the absentee voting, the deadline for the withdrawal of the candidacy has long passed.
