Leslie was the only lefty in the group, so from then on, she decided to become right-hand dominant so she would not have to stand in a line by herself.
Before the allegations surfaced, Moore, a Christian conservative and former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice, had been heavily favored to defeat Democrat Doug Jones, a former U. A Democratic win in Alabama would be a blow to Trump’s agenda and shift the political outlook for next year’s congressional elections, giving Democrats a stronger shot at wiping out the Republicans’ 52-48 Senate majority.
Moore has suggested that Mc Connell and other establishment Republicans are working with news media to discredit him.
The Alabama state party’s leadership met on Wednesday night to discuss their stance and took no action, news media reported. Senate Republican leader Mitch Mc Connell has spoken to President Donald Trump and others about the situation.
Republican leaders in Washington have asked Moore to withdraw from the race and said they are exploring write-in options for the election. Trump appeared at the White House on Wednesday but did not mention Moore.
Five other women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct or of dating them when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers. Moore on Wednesday denied the allegations of the first five women to step forward.
National Republican Party leaders have responded with demands that he drop out of the Senate race. 12 special election will fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he was named U. “We are in the process of investigating these false allegations to determine their origin and motivation,” he said in a statement.
The Washington Post first disclosed allegations by four women about their relationships with Moore when they were teenagers, ranging in age from 14 to 18.
One of the women said he initiated sexual contact with her when she was 14 and Moore was in his 30s.
Under state law, Moore cannot be removed from the ballot.
