"He will not step down".

She says he will not stop fighting for the people of Alabama and repeated what her husband said the day before when he remarked: "I will not stop until they lay me in that box in the ground".

"It's disturbing that many of Trump's diehard supporters are so stubborn", Mindy McGillivray, who says Trump groped her while she was attending a concert at Mar-a-Lago in 2003, told People. I don't think you have seen him issue an endorsement. I was going to be one of his voters.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Friday that Trump finds the allegations against Moore "extremely troubling" but won't intervene in the election.

The women who have accused President Donald Trump of sexual assault are patiently awaiting his undoing.

"It's been simmering on the stove with the lid on, like a pressure cooker", she said. Another said Moore assaulted her when she was a 16-year-old waitress after he offered to drive her home.

"I have not found any reason not to believe them".

An eighth accuser came forward Friday.

Short said "We have serious concerns about the allegations that have been made, but we also believe that all of this information is out there for the people of Alabama".

Moore's candidacy has left GOP officials in a bind, especially after GOP Gov. Kay Ivey said she will not postpone the election and will vote for Moore.

One Republican senator urged Alabama voters to reject Moore in the December 12 election even if that could mean ceding the seat to a Democrat and narrowing the GOP's 52-48 Senate edge. He initially supported appointed Republican Sen.

Republicans in Washington are growing concerned that Moore might not only lose the special Senate election in Alabama but damage the GOP's brand with women across the country. If a recent Fox News poll is accurate and he trails Democrat Doug Jones by 8 percentage points, a loss would trim the Republican majority to just 51 votes. Support from women was helping to give Jones the edge with 68 percent for Jones compared to 32 percent for Moore. Her cousin was a Republican governor. Luther Strange in the September 26 primary to determine Sessions' successor and campaigned in the state, a Republican stronghold.

"I hope that the voters of Alabama choose not to elect him", said Sen.

"Years later", Moore wrote, when she was 23 - she's 14 years his junior- he finally met her.

Moore has been dogged by allegations that he sexually assaulted two women decades ago when they were teenagers.

After Moore's victory, Trump made clear he would back the anti-establishment candidate enthusiastically promoted by former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon. When something pops up on social media that could help his cause, she shares it on Facebook.

Falvey, who runs an LGBT community center, said she was angered by the stories about Moore since he had fought to block gay marriage in the state.

"I think that's probably the most common sense way to look at it".
