Susan Collins said on Sunday that she does not believe Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's denials of the sexual allegations against him and hopes the state's voters do not send him to Washington.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she has no reason to disbelieve the accusers, and she's bothered by the allegations. Roy Moore has been in public service for decades, and the accusations did not arise until a month before the election. "I think that's the most commonsense way to look at it". Moore has denied the allegations.

Moore still enjoys the support of conservative evangelical leaders, but he has ignored mounting calls from Washington Republicans concerned that if he stays in the race he may not only lose a seat they were sure to win but also may do significant damage to the party's brand among women nationwide as they prepare for a hard midterm election season.

After Moore's victory, Trump made clear he would back the anti-establishment candidate enthusiastically promoted by former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon.

Short, pressed repeatedly about whether Trump still supported Moore, said: "I don't think you have seen him issue an endorsement".

Asked if Trump believed the women accusing Moore, Short said, "If he did not believe that the women's accusations were credible, he would be down campaigning for Roy Moore". Tynes said the action was "the best birthday present ever", and said the resolution was the first of its kind by a Republican group in Alabama since the Moore allegations surfaced last week.

Barber and other speakers claimed Moore's campaign is fueled by a perversion of Christianity linked with white supremacy, and Moore is trying to take those forces to the Senate.

On Friday, Kayla Moore surrounded herself with two dozen other women to defend him.

Barber, former head of the North Carolina NAACP, spoke at an anti-Moore rally at the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama, that drew more than 100 people.

On Friday, more than 50 Alabama pastors signed a public letter stating Moore isn't fit to serve in the U.S. Senate. Scott said he thinks there was "a strong possibility with a new candidate, a new Republican candidate, a proven conservative, that we can win that race". The Alabama Republican Party has also thrown its support behind Moore.

"He has said that he thinks that the voters of Alabama should decide", Mulvaney told Andrea Mitchell on Sunday's "Meet The Press".
