Mitch McConnell, Republicans Call on Roy Moore to Withdraw From Alabama Race If Allegations True

Top Republicans are calling on former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice Roy Moore to withdraw from the Alabama Senate race in the wake of a Washington Post report detailing claims that Moore pursued relationships with four teenaged women.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) set the tone for what appears to be the unified Republican stance — calling on Moore to quit the race, provided the claims outlined in Post report are accurate.

“If the allegations are true, he must step aside,” McConnell said in a statement.

As we mentioned, the rest of the party seems to be in lockstep with McConnell. Here’s a sampling of the reaction from Congressional Republicans.
