The Republican National Committee has just made a major move that could change everything for Judge Roy Moore. It comes just days before the special election for the U.S. Senate in Alabama.
Moore became a household name in recent weeks after numerous allegations accused him of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behavior. Moore has denied the allegations completely and vowed to continue his campaign race.
At the time, the RNC decided it was best to seemingly cut ties with Moore. They also pulled their funding from his campaign, a move that proves costly in a close election race. However, after President Trump decided to stand behind Moore, the RNC is back in.
"The Republican National Committee will transfer funds to the Alabama Republican Party following President Donald Trump's endorsement Monday of GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore in that state's special election next week," according to a senior RNC official.
Since the announcement, Mitt Romney has decided to weigh in. Most folks remember Romney for his big league loss in the Presidential election to Barack Obama in 2012.
"Roy Moore in the US Senate would be a stain on the GOP and on the nation. Leigh Corfman and other victims are courageous heroes. No vote, no majority is worth losing our honor, our integrity," Romney tweeted.
Romney has been openly critical of Moore in the past, despite zero concrete evidence that any allegations against Moore are actually true. He has also called the Judge "unfit for office" and urged him to resign. Senator Jeff Flake tweeted his support for Mitt.
"Mitt Romney is right. A Roy Moore victory is no victory for the GOP and the nation," wrote Flake.
