The campaign for Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore has removed his endorsements from its website, a move that comes after multiple Republican senators revoked their support of Moore in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations. 

Under a header for Moore’s endorsements reads “The List of Endorsements is Currently Being Updated.”

Multiple Republican senators have said Moore should exit the race following the allegations, which were first revealed last week in a story by The Washington Post.

But the Alabama Republican has insisted he will remain in the race. 

Moore has denied an allegation that in 1979 he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32. The Post’s story also included three women who said Moore made advances toward them during a similar time frame, when they were between 16 and 18 years old.

In an interview last week, however, Moore admitted he may have dated women in their later teens during that time in his life, but said he did not “remember anything like that.”

Following the Post’s story, another accuser publicly alleged that Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16.
