According to the Washingtonian, Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore’s campaign communications director, John Rogers, has resigned from the team.
So what does this mean for the campaign?
Although he declined to comment on the situation, Rogers has confirmed that he has resigned.
The decision comes as Moore faces multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including accusations that he made advances on teenagers when he was in his 30s.
President Trump on Tuesday appeared to back Moore and downplayed the allegations against him.
The president said, “We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat.”
He also slammed Doug Jones, the Democrat running against Moore, and said that his record is “terrible on crime, it’s terrible on the border, it’s terrible on the military.”
Although Trump has remained neutral on whether or not he believe Moore’s denial of the allegations, he did said, “He denies it. He totally denies it. Roy Moore denies it — that’s all I can say.”
Many swamp Republicans are calling for Moore’s resignation, along with Democrats. I wonder if they would be so inclined to push the accusations if the country knew just how many of them have paid off an accuser.
Moore has been defiant, refusing to drop out and calling the allegations an effort by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to steal the election from Alabama voters.
Moore’s chief political strategist, Dean Young, on Tuesday attacked the media, establishment Republicans and Moore’s accusers.
Kayla Moore, Roy Moore’s wife, still stands strong next to her husband and has stated that he will not be stepping down.
