Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby, and a handful of other Republican senators called on Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore to withdraw from the race if a report that he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl in 1979 is true.
Shelby, who backed Luther Strange in the primary but did not go on to endorse Moore in the general election, agreed.
"If these allegations are true, there is no place for Roy Moore in the United States Senate," he said in a statement.
Arizona Sen. John McCain tweeted that the allegations were "deeply troubling and disqualifying."
Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake shared that sentiment in a tweet.
Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, said she was "horrified" by the allegations and also called for Moore to withdraw if the reports are accurate.
Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado says, "The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling."

I didn’t know that Shelby was backing Jones.
Odd, nobody ever demanded Bill Clintoon to resign, or Ted Kennedy........................
This is going to happen to pretty much ever Republican male who runs for national office from here on out.
Nice of them to stand by him and await the facts to come in.
Let’s say, for argument’s sake, Moore stays in and wins the election.
Then what does McConnell and the other Rinos DO?...............
Every non-RINO Republican from now on.
Any man can be destroyed by an allegation in this country. The message is clear that the swamp will not be drained.
‘Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado’
I won’t make the mistake of voting for this POS a second time.
The pompous frauds of the US Senate refused even to deliberate or hold hearings when President Bill Clinton had been IMPEACHED and there was extensive evidence of not only his sexual misconduct but also perjury, etc. They would not do their constitutional duty then, but now they want to jump on a conservative without a shred of evidence....
Except RINO’s like McCain and Romney.
Feeding frenzy. Makes me hate the GOPe even more if that is possible.
Et tu, Richard?
Yup, and considering the number of degenerates already sitting in the Senate, it’s a dangerous tactic to take.
SUPPORT JUDGE MOORE!
It is indeed a coordinated attack on Judge Moore. McConnell and the GOPe/RAT swamp critters are TERRIFIED of the incorruptible Judge Moore coming to the Senate and the effect his victory in next months race will have in the 2018 primaries and general election.
They are pulling out every dirty trick they can come up with in their attempts to defeat him.
I find the Republican Leadership to be utterly detestable and only hope and pray they all commit suicide or are struck dead by a lightning bolt for their treasonous acts against the Peopel of the United States.
Either way Lucifer is going to have a lot of company

Only the States can or will drain the swamp.
Targeted hit on Moore.
Right according to the Uniparty playbook.
They did the same to Trump three weeks before the election with pussy grabbing scam and the 10 women represented by Gloria Albright.
Maybe the real reason McConnell was shipped out of the Army in 1967 after only five months at the height of Vietnam needs to be discussed.
These GOP invertebrates keep going lower and lower.
The GOP needs to go the way of the Whigs.
The sooner the better.
