Republican National Committee Cuts Off Roy Moore

The Republican National Committee has officially cut off Roy Moore, ending its fundraising agreement and scrapping a field operation, according to Politico. The move comes as pressure is mounting on Moore to step aside from the race amid allegations of sexual misconduct. Republican lawmakers have called on Moore to step aside from the race, but the former Alabama state supreme court justice has remained defiant and vowed to stay in the race as he denies the allegations against him, which include sexually pursuing teenage girls when he was in his late 20s and 30s. National Republicans are evaluating their options when it comes to preventing Moore from becoming a senator. Those options, which include pushing for a viable GOP write-in campaign, are very limited. Moore is facing off against Democrat Doug Jones in the general election taking place Dec. 12.
