"Courtland is a man of impeccable character, courage, and Christian faith. We need men like Courtland Sykes in the Senate of the United States, a leader who will not only say what is right, but also a leader who will do what is right!"

He faced criticism in January after posting a statement to Facebook in which he railed against "manophobic hell-bent feminist she devils" and said his fiancee is expected to have dinner prepared for him every night. 

"Chanel knows that my obedience comes with a small price that she loves to pay anyway: I want to come home to a home-cooked dinner at six every night, one that she fixes," Sykes said. 

"And one that I expect one day to have my daughters learn to fix after they become traditional homemakers and family wives."

A slew of sexual misconduct allegations surfaced against Moore during the campaign. Moore has denied the claims, some which alleged that he had initiated sexual encounters with teenage girls while he was in his 30s. 

Trump has yet to endorse any of McCaskill's challengers, but he has publicly targeted the incumbent senator's reelection bid.
