GOP increasingly wants Alabama candidate Roy Moore to quit Senate race

Jones's comment come after the Washington Post reported that Jones had engaged in sexually inappropriate behavior with girls aged between 16 and 18 in the early 80s - when he was in his early 30s. "Don't think of it as ending your campaign, think of it as going to conversion therapy to turn yourself into someone who's no longer a candidate", he said.

But others have said more strongly that they believe the detailed accounts of the women and acknowledge the public ridicule the accusers have faced for coming forward.

'In the next few days there will be revelations about the motivation and the content of this article, ' Moore said during a Birmingham campaign rally on Saturday.

"There's a special place in hell for those who actually perpetrate these crimes, and I think Roy Moore has to do more explaining than he has done so far", White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short told NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.

Perhaps Democratic candidate Doug Jones has found his new slogan?

Republicans on Capital Hill have been quick to distance themselves from the arch social conservative, with Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) saying if the allegations are true, Moore should withdraw from the race. "You know, this is a awful situation", Toomey said on NBC News' "Meet the Press".

Moore faces Democrat Doug Jones, 63, a former US attorney, in a special election on December 12 to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, now the USA attorney general. Moore won the September 26 primary election by about 9 percentage points over unusual, who was backed by President Donald Trump.

Last night's episode of Saturday Night Live tackled the week's endless stream of sexual assault allegations, shooting barbs at the likes of Roy Moore, Louis C.K.

"I will never give up the fight", Moore tweeted Thursday.
