GOP Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) on Monday called for embattled GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the Alabama Senate race after he was accused of making sexual contact with teenage girls.
His comments come after a woman accused Moore of initiating sexual contact with her in 1979, when she was 14 and he was 32.
