He has refused to leave the race and said on Twitter that McConnell was the person who should step down.

"I believe the women, yes", he said.

Moore eventually stopped, Nelson said, and warned her no one would believe her if she shared her story. Initial polls after the first allegations surfaced on Thursday showed Moore in a competitive race with Democrat Doug Jones in deep-red Alabama, and the latest allegations could further damage his campaign. I tried fighting him off, while yelling at him to stop, but instead of stopping he began squeezing my neck attempting to force my head into his crotch. I'm going to vote for Roy Moore to make a statement.' So, I don't interpret the 29 percent as condoning what Roy Moore did. In an interview Friday afternoon with Sean Hannity, Moore denied ever having met Corfman but said he may have dated at least two of the women who spoke to the Post.

Moore has denied any wrongdoing and has not indicated he plans to drop out of the December 12 special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions' former Senate seat.

Moore said allegations that he was involved with a minor child are "untrue" and said the newspaper "will be sued", drawing a round of applause.

The Washington Post broke the initial story last week, rocking the U.S. Senate special election in Alabama. In September, Moore defeated Luther Strange, the Republican senator who had been appointed to fill Sessions' seat, in a Republican primary. These allegations came four and a half weeks before the general election on December 12. "I sometimes wonder, how much does it take for people to believe women in these instances?"

Even if Moore were to step aside, his name would likely remain on the ballot.
