Franken said it was ironic that he was leaving while Moore campaigned with backing of his party and Trump, who past year faced allegations of sexual misconduct, remained in the Oval Office.

Senior party figures saying they are sticking with Mr Moore.

Moore has come under fire in the past day for comments about slavery and Vladimir Putin, but the President made it clear tonight that the Republicans "cannot afford" to lose a seat in the Senate.

The allegations against Moore, which were corroborated by dozens of sources from multiple news outlets, promptedRepublican lawmakers and the Republican National Committee to withdraw support for Moore last month.

The AP tried to find out how Republican leaders from Alabama plan to vote. Martha Roby, Mike Rogers and Gary Palmer, as well as state Treasurer Young Boozer and state House Speaker Mac McCutcheon.

"Responding to someone in the crowd who was chanting Moore's name, the President heartily agreed".




Moore was dumped from his state's Supreme Court for ignoring a federal court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state's judicial building and for opposing gay marriage after the U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized it. What he says about Moore and his accusers matters, especially among a voter base that is already heavily skeptical of East Coast media and the more traditional Republican establishment.

CNN reported last month that U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne said he will vote Republican and that he does not cast write-in votes. "I did not vote for Judge Moore, but I voted Republican", Shelby said. Jones then needs to win one in three white voters in the state, which would require capturing about 15 percent of Republicans, McCrary said.

Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations and dismissed them as politically motivated attacks. "I'm sorry, but just to keep the Democrats out", she said is her reasoning. "The decision is ultimately up to the people of Alabama to evaluate the information they have before them and make an informed decision". Bob Riley in a 2006 campaign for the Republican nomination, and he finished fourth in a seven-person primary race in 2010.

Shelby previously announced his refusal to vote for Moore, but he explained it during the interview.

Ivey became governor earlier this year after Robert Bentley resigned amid a sex scandal involving a much younger female political aide. Those who did suggested they would support Jones, even if they didn't know him well. "Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in his pinkie finger than your entire family has".

Trump didn't miss his opportunity to mention the yearbook note on Friday night, and seemed to relish the chance to try to discredit both Nelson and Allred, who also represents three of the 16 women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct.
