(Washington Examiner) Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey said she intends to vote for Roy Moore, the Republican special election candidate for U.S. Senate, who is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
Speaking to reporters on Friday, Ivey, a Republican, cited future Supreme Court vacancies as a leading reason for her decision.
"I believe in the Republican Party, what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions,” Ivey told reporters on Friday. Ivey also said she has no reason not to believe Moore's accusers, but noted that the timing of their accusations is "curious."
