During a Florida campaign rally near the Alabama border Friday night, Trump urged his supporters to vote for Moore. The president also recorded a robocall in support of Moore.

Several GOP lawmakers and officials have denounced Moore, calling for him to step down or for an ethics investigation into the allegations if he is elected.

A member of the Republican National Committee (RNC) resigned Monday over the RNC’s support for Moore. The RNC originally withdrew its financial support of Moore, but reinstated it after Trump offered Moore his endorsement.
