. Moore, now 70, has denied the allegations, which include accounts from three other women who say Moore pursued relationships with them when they were between 16 and 18.

In the fundraising plea, Moore says "the Obama-Clinton Machine's liberal media lapdogs just launched the most vicious and nasty round of attacks against me I've EVER faced". "I think the scenario you are introducing for me to comment on is highly improbable for this reason: We have people who have already voted in this election". I just don't believe that it is, and I'm saddened by it.

Even if Moore formally drops out of the race, it's too late for his name to be taken off the ballot.

Raddatz asked Kasich if he can imagine Democrats winning the Senate seat in Alabama, which was vacated by Republican Jeff Sessions when he became us attorney general. The Alabama Senate election is on December 12, a little more than 30 days away.

"I don't know if she has the authority to change the election in mid-stream", Merrill said.
