The former judge has denied the allegations about the girl and about having pursued dates with three other teenagers when he was in his 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.

Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short was a bit more definitive than his colleagues, at least, telling Meet the Press's Chuck Todd that "There's no Senate seat more important than the issue of child pedophilia".

Asked if that would have been usual for him, Moore said, "Not generally, no".

"I have not provided alcoholic beverages, beer or anything else, to a minor", Moore said.

Perhaps Democratic candidate Doug Jones has found his new slogan?

A flurry of Republicans have condemned the behavior but have qualified their calls for him to step down with an "if" proven true.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who seems to enjoy weighing in on issues well beyond his purview, told CNN's Jake Tapper that "if the allegations prove to be true, he should step down".

AT&T may have to sell CNN to merge with Time Warner
Those remarks put AT&T and DOJ on a collision course, policy analysts said, which may lead to DOJ suing to block the deal. "I didn't make that decision", Trump told reporters.

Teresa Jones, who worked with Moore as a deputy district attorney for Etowah County, Ala., from 1982 until 1985, said that it was "common knowledge" the controversial politician allegedly preferred younger women.

The election is December 12.

There's options for unusual or another candidate to launch a competitive write-in candidacy, while some Republicans are pushing for a delay in the election.

Toomey didn't rule out the possibility that Senate Republicans might work to unseat Moore if he wins the special election against Democrat Doug Jones on December 12. Moore won the September 26 primary election by about 9 percentage points over unusual, who was backed by President Donald Trump.

During the primary, Trump joined Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and much of the GOP establishment in supporting Sen.

Moore's name remains on the ballot and he intends to win the election.
