GOP Senate Campaign Chair: ‘Roy Moore Will Never’ Have Our Support

(Jack Crowe, Daily Caller News Foundation) The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) chairman said Thursday the organization will never support Republican Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore due to the multiple allegations that he had sexual contact with teenagers.

“Roy Moore will never have the support of the senatorial committee. We will never endorse him. We won’t support him,” Republican Colorado Sen. Cory Gardner told The Weekly Standard.

“I won’t let that happen,” he added. “Nothing will change. I stand by my previous statement.”

Gardner’s denunciation comes days after the Republican National Committee (RNC) announced they would provide funding to Moore’s campaign after initially cutting off support in November in the wake of the allegations.

The RNC’s renewed support followed President Donald Trump’s Monday endorsement of Moore.

The support of the NRSC is instrumental to Republican Senate candidates as the organization provides monetary and strategic support.

Gardner called for Moore’s expulsion should he be elected in November after he was accused of molesting a 14-year-old girl, and pursuing romantic relationships with multiple teen girls while in his thirties.

A number of prominent Republicans joined Gardner in calling for Moore to withdraw, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who said Tuesday he would immediately call for a Senate Ethics Committee investigation if Moore is elected.

“I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office,” Gardner said in a statement. “If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate.”

Moore’s polling numbers fell in the aftermath of the accusations, but he has since recovered. He enjoys a slight lead in the polls days before the Tuesday election.

    I don’t agree with sexual harassment, groping, or any other unwanted advances. With that said I have a serious contention with comparing Roy Moore to current members assaulting and groping women. Comparing acts of pursuing younger women as an unmarried single man that happened FOURTY THAT’S 40 YEARS AGO!! to politicians that are married and assaulting women that are subordinate or in a lesser position is ludicrous.
    There is absolutely no comparison. The people he actually dated said they no more than kissed. A pretty innocent act. So the groping assault stories don’t really jive with that.
    This is a single guy in the 1970s. That time can hardly be relevant now. Over 40 years have passed without issue or complaints. Once a dog always a dog. There would be other instances that would have come out in the last 40 years if there was any truth to the predator accusations. Seriously people need to pay more attention to the time period. Even slightly unethical behavior 40 years ago cannot be judged now. No criminal charges can be filed now even if a crime was committed. So let’s leave the guy alone. Same thing applies for ethics investigations. Current ethics last decade matters
