  • Former Alabama Chief Justice and U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore waits to speak at a newss conference Thursday Nov. 16 2017 in Birmingham Ala

Ivey did not say that Moore's accusers are lying, however.

Speaking in between hymns and sermons urging people to accept Jesus, the embattled Senate candidate dismissed the allegations as an effort to derail his rise to the Senate and end his political career that included an effort to halt same-sex marriage in the state and install a granite Ten Commandments monument in the lobby of the state appellate courthouse.

"I was going to vote for him". That could threaten the Republicans' slim majority in the Senate.

Ivey has previously been noncommittal about voting for Moore amid accusations he sexually molested young women and tried to date teenage girls.

The Republican became governor this year following the resignation of Robert Bentley, also a Republican. She won't vote for Moore, a decision she made before the election.

"They" are Moore's critics who accept the allegations by several women that his behavior toward them ranged from unwanted advances to assault, and that he is unfit for office as a result. When he was asked two questions about his response to the allegations of sexual misconduct, he quickly hustled out the room. One of the women said that she was 14 when he pursued her and initiated a sexual encounter.

"I'm glad you got more church than you've probably had in the last 10 years", she said. But she adds: "The timing is a little curious".

On the whole, prominent Alabama Republican officials and organizations, including the state party, have stood by Moore.

Kayla Moore spoke out in defense of her husband on Friday.

"He will not step down". "He will continue to take his case straight to the people of Alabama". "They're not only untrue but they have no evidence to support them", he said, "The Washington Post is not evidence", he continued. And she apologized for not being able to reply to all the well-wishers.

She dubbed a New Yorker story that suggested the former judge was barred from an Alabama mall a "hit piece", saying it "would have been nice if the press would find out the truth first before they run with gossip". "Alabamians are pro-life and will not be fooled by this latest attempt of abortion supporters to steal an election", the letter reads.

"I think it's pretty sad that anybody would put partisan politics over the good of the state and the good of the country", said Jones.
