Rep. Barbara ComstockBarbara Jean ComstockLive coverage: House holds third day of public impeachment hearings Gun debate raises stakes in battle for Virginia legislature Progressives face steep odds in ousting incumbent Democrats MORE (R-Va.) said on Sunday that it bothers her that President TrumpDonald John TrumpTrump suggests some states may 'pay nothing' as part of unemployment plan Trump denies White House asked about adding him to Mount Rushmore Trump, US face pivotal UN vote on Iran MORE and the Republican National Committee (RNC) have thrown their support behind Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) after numerous sexual misconduct allegations against him. 

Fox News's Chris Wallace asked Comstock whether Trump and the RNC's support bothered her as a Republican woman on "Fox News Sunday."


"Yes, I mean it doesn't represent me. I don't think it represents most of the Republican women, as well, as my colleagues like Senators Tim ScottTimothy (Tim) Eugene ScottLobbyists see wins, losses in GOP coronavirus bill Revered civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis lies in state in the Capitol GOP plan would boost deduction for business meals MORE [R-S.C.] and Corey Gardner [R-Colo.] have made clear," Comstock said. 

“The voters are going to decide on Tuesday, but I think they're going to have an ethics investigation and what we've been doing on my committee is that we've been hearing the voices of the women and the victims, and that is what is going to happen, because every woman has a story.

Comstock's comments come days before Moore faces off with his Democratic opponent Doug Jones for Attorney General Jeff Sessions's former Senate seat. 

Allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls have plagued Moore for the past month of the race. Trump has endorsed the candidate, however, urging people to get out and vote for him at a rally on Friday. 

The RNC also reinstated its support earlier this month, after pulling back following the allegations.
