Missouri US Senate candidates weigh in on Roy Moore controversy

Hollywood’s #MeToo wave engulfs Washington

In Washington, Republican leaders set aside any such fears and have made plain their disgust for Mr. Moore, who they worry will endanger the party's elected officials and candidates nationwide.

"I will cast my ballot on December the 12", Ivey told reporters. "And I do believe that the nominee of the party is the one I will vote for".

McConnell has floated the possibility of pushing a write-in candidate as an alternative to Moore, but Republican senators say that gambit has virtually no chance of succeeding as long as Moore stays in the race.

Standing on the white marble steps of Alabama's Capitol, Kayla Moore surrounded herself with two dozen other women to defend husband Roy Moore against accusations of sexual misconduct that are dividing Republicans, and women in particular. "Do they want to continue to back someone accused of these terrible things and also lose the seat?" said a source close to the Senate Republican leadership.

She attributed her decision to a desire to preserve the advantage Republicans hold over Democrats in the Senate, which has enabled them to advance key judicial nominations and other elements of the GOP agenda. The PAC also contributed a collective $25,500 to to nine candidates seeking election or reelection to the House of Representatives in 2018.

The accusations sent a shockwave through the Senate race in Alabama, where Republicans typically have a lock on statewide election. Moore has denied the allegations. Four women claim Moore pursued them while the women were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

On Tuesday, the Republican National Committee pulled its financial support for Moore, following similar action last week by the National Republican Senatorial Committee.

NASA captures 20 years of seasonal changes of home planet
It was created using data compiled from satellites orbiting the Earth and it shows how life on our planet has changed. Ivona Cetenic joined FOX10 News for an interview Friday morning to tell us more about it.

She stopped short of calling for Moore to drop out, saying that Trump "thinks that the people of Alabama should make the decision on who their next senator should be".

Whatever they do, it's too late to pull Moore's name off the ballot; people have been voting absentee in the state since October 18.

Mr. Moore is running against Doug Jones, the Democratic nominee and a former federal prosecutor in Birmingham, to fill the seat that Attorney General Jeff Sessions vacated this year.

A Fox News poll released Thursday, a week after the first accusations, showed Jones leading Moore by eight points.

Moore's vocal stance came after a support rally featuring Alabama religious leaders, including Rabbi Noson Leiter, who praised Moore's defense of "biblical values and not perversion", and his fight against "transgender bathroom bills LGBT indoctrination in schools and much more".

"I think it's really hypocritical and an embarrassment for the state of Alabama, and he's dragging us backwards", Falvey said.
