Steve Bannon will continue to support Roy Moore

His lawyer, Phillip Jauregui, held a freakish news conference Wednesday afternoon in which he said Moore's campaign had hired a handwriting expert, and wanted to see a yearbook belonging to one of the accusers who said Moore had signed it to determine whether it was really Moore's writing.

"I have no reason to doubt these young women", Sessions said, but declined to comment on whether Moore should drop out of the race.

"Judge Moore has shown he has the strength to stand for principle, regardless of personal cost", HIce said in a statement before Moore's victory in the Republican runoff against incumbent Sen.

This press conference was issued not long after Sean Hannity gave Roy Moore an ultimatum. Ryan joined other lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, in urging Moore to exit.

And the Republican National Committee appears to have pulled out from a joint fundraising agreement with Moore, according to filings with the Federal Election Commission.

Several of Moore's most die-hard supporters back home, however, are sticking by him, though several supporters who initially backed him have since been quiet about his candidacy in the wake of another accusation of sexual assault against him Monday afternoon.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said that as of Tuesday, he would still vote for Moore unless the mounting sex allegations were proven true.

"As someone with daughters of my own, I steadfastly believe that anyone engaging in the behavior that has been alleged against Roy Moore is in the wrong", Hice said in a statement to The Covington News on Wednesday.

Alabama Republican Party officials convened by phone late Wednesday to discuss the path forward for Moore.

Hannity played footage of Moore saying the accusation was "absolutely false" and that he didn't even know the woman. Having pushed publicly and privately for Moore to get out of the race, Republicans believe their last best shot is Trump, who they hope can persuade his fellow political rebel to fall in line. A victory would saddle GOP senators with a colleague accused of abusing and harassing teenagers, a troubling liability heading into next year's congressional elections, while an upset victory by Democrat Doug Jones would slice the already narrow GOP Senate majority to an unwieldy 51-49. "We just kind of wanted to affirm that we are still supporting our candidate", said Noah Wahl, the Limestone County GOP chairman. Moore added that "I don't remember dating any girl without the permission of her mother".

The committee could vote to disqualify Moore which would prevent him from taking office.
