Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she plans to vote for Republican Roy Moore for U.S. Senate even though he faces accusations of sexual misconduct.
Ivey told reporters Friday which a factor in her decision is usually maintaining GOP control of the Senate. She says the state needs to send a Republican to Washington, so she intends to vote for the Republican nominee.
Ivey has previously been noncommittal about voting for Moore amid accusations he sexually molested young women along with tried to date teenage girls.
Ivey says she has no reason to disbelieve women who have come forward to make allegations of wrongdoing by Moore. yet she adds: “The timing is usually a little curious.”
Moore is usually running against Democrat Doug Jones inside the special election on Dec. 12.
