McConnell exploring all options to keep Roy Moore out of Senate

As of Monday, Brooks stood by Moore, telling, "America faces huge challenges that are vastly more important than contested sexual allegations from four decades ago".

The Dec. 12 special election is key to Republican control of the Senate. That's how he justifies supporting Roy Moore, accused of assaulting a 14-year-old girl among other five women who've accused the Republican Judge - as if Donald Trump were not already actually doing great harm to our country.

Before the allegations surfaced, Moore was favored to win the race, which would preserve the Republican hold on 52 seats in the 100-member upper chamber.

After running against Moore and finishing third in Alabama's Republican Senate primary, Brooks endorsed Moore in September, according to The Associated Press.

"We will evaluate every case as to whether or not it should be investigated", Sessions replied. This is the latest step by the Republican Party establishment to distance itself from Moore following accusations by women who said that Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers and while he was in his 30s.

Mr. McConnell, however, said that the Republicans are still considering having another candidate launch a write-in campaign against Mr. Moore.

Trump, a Republican, has yet to fully weigh in on the allegations against Moore, but is expected to do so after he returns from a 12-day trip to Asia on Tuesday evening. And 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.

"Do you believe Roy Moore or the women", Llamas asked, following closely behind the swift-moving Brooks.

Moore, who has repeatedly denied the allegations, has also threatened to sue The Washington Post over the report that broke the news last week.
