Two Republican Senators Withdraw Their Endorsements Of Roy Moore




Republican Sens. Mike Lee (Utah) and Steve Daines (Montana) both announced on Friday night that they have pulled their endorsement of GOP Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore, coming just minutes after his interview with Sean Hannity in which he called the allegations against him “false and misleading” before admitting he may have dated girls younger than 18.

“Having read the detailed description of the incidents, as well as the response from Judge Moore and his campaign, I can no longer endorse his candidacy for the US Senate,” Lee said in a statement.

“I am pulling my endorsement and support for Roy Moore for U.S. Senate,” Daines tweeted.




The Hill added:

In a bombshell report in The Washington Post Thursday, Moore was accused of having inappropriate sexual conduct with a 14-year-old girl in 1979 when he was 32.

The newspaper also found three other women who said that Moore had approached them around a similar time, when they were between the ages of 16 and 18.

Moore has denied the allegations, calling them “completely false.”
