The National Republican Senatorial Committee, the Senate GOP’s campaign arm, pulled out of the fundraising agreement last week.
And on Monday, NRSC chairman Cory Gardner (R-Colo.) said if Moore does win the election, senators should vote to expel him from the chamber.
“I believe the individuals speaking out against Roy Moore spoke with courage and truth, proving he is unfit to serve in the United States Senate and he should not run for office,” Gardner said in a statement.
Most Senate Republicans never supported Moore, one of several “insurgent” Senate candidates backed by former White House adviser Steve Bannon. Bannon has declared war on the GOP establishment and has reportedly pressed the candidates he’s backing to pledge to vote against McConnell’s re-election as majority leader.
Just five GOP senators endorsed Moore’s candidacy. All but one — Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul — have withdrawn their support since the allegations came to light.
So why are they asking him to step aside or resign if elected due to multiple allegations of sexual assault, but the same thing is not happening with Trump?
