'We need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama'

President Donald Trump formally endorsed Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Monday, following a phone call between the two men.

The former Alabama supreme court judge has been accused by seven women of pursuing sexual relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was a 30-something prosecutor.

Fundraising by Republican Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is lagging behind that of his Democratic rival Doug Jones as Democrats flood the race with money in hopes of stealing a victory as the special election campaign for the seat enters the final stretch.

This is a breaking story. "We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more". Moore denies the allegations. Beverly Young Nelson accused Moore of sexually assaulting her when she was 16 years old.

Moore has been touting Trump's tacit support, and was quick to embrace his full endorsement this morning. The president plans to hold a campaign-style rally on Friday in Pensacola, Florida, near the Alabama border. Richard Uihlein, one of the nation's top donors to conservative candidates and causes, gave $100,000 to the Proven Conservative PAC, which supports Moore, disclosures filed last week show.

The scrapbook also contains a note Gibson said she wrote about her first date with Moore. "And look, you have to look at him also".

Ivanka Trump previously said: "I've yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims' accounts".

Marc Short, the White House director of legislative affairs, said in an interview Monday on CNN's "New Day" that Trump has "been clear" about his concerns with Moore but that securing another Republican vote for a potential tax reform bill is "a factor to consider".

Moore has faced several critics within his own party in the Senate, but as his campaign has endured the allegations, some have softened their stance.

Trump, who himself has faced accusations of sexual harassment, rebuffed the Republican establishment with his endorsement of Moore. Over the weekend, McConnell said simply that it's up to the voters of Alabama.
