Among those supporters is U.S. President Donald Trump, who tweeted an endorsement of Moore Monday, citing his anti-abortion views.

While Bannon is hardly a household name in Alabama - some rally attendees barely knew who he was - he served as Trump's chief strategist during the final months of his presidential campaign and in the early months of his presidency. Jeff Flake, sent a $100 check to Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones on Tuesday.

He said: "We must never meekly accept the daily sundering of our country - the personal attacks, the threats against principles, freedoms, and institutions, the flagrant disregard for truth or decency, the reckless provocations, most often for the pettiest and most personal reasons, reasons having nothing whatsoever to do with the fortunes of the people that we have all been elected to serve". But on Sunday, the Republican McConnell said it was up to Alabama voters to decide whether to send Moore to Washington.

- Moore met Kayla at a church gathering the week before Christmas 1984, according to his 2005 book So Help Me God.

Bannon, stumping for controversial Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama in Fairhope, Alabama, touted Moore's military service in Vietnam and criticized Romney for his lack of "honor and integrity".

"This is not something he's struggling with", one unnamed senior White House official told the publication, referring to Trump's belief of Moore's denials.

Senate Republicans have softened their rhetoric toward embattled GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore. "Our campaign is going straight to the people of the Alabama because that's who my voters are".

Moore has leaned on his anti-abortion stance to gain support in the Alabama special election, slated to take place on Dec. 12. "We want strong borders, we want stopping crime, we want to have the things that we represent". Hatch said of Moore, "That's the only Republican you can possibly get down there at this time".

Since the Washington Post's original reporting, at least eight women have come forward alleging Moore of sexual misconduct, including one woman who alleged that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 14 years old. It is actually a fetid pile of moral relativism, courtesy of the party of family values, and they own it. "Amid an outpouring of misconduct allegations, Moore's campaign has clearly set the standard that details are important and should be vetted rigorously", the reporters wrote. Committee selection and membership are ultimately subject to a floor vote of the entire Senate. "Mitch McConnell and his allies have failed to destroy Judge Moore, just like they will fail to destroy other insurgent candidates in 2018". This is a perfect metaphor for these manbabies pretending to be grownups. The far more relevant framing is "Trump Backs Alabama Senate Candidate Accused of Sexual Abuse". You see, to some Republicans, it's OK to molest a child so long as that molester identifies with the gender they were born as, but the moment that someone begins to think they may be different, then it's apparently disqualifying to molest children.
