It’s been five days since a Washington Post report detailed the stories of four women who allege that Republican nominee Roy Moore engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with them when they were between the ages of 14 and 18 years old and Moore was in his 30s. Five days haven’t brought much clarity to what impact these charges will have on the special election scheduled on December 12. If anything, divisions between Moore and many of his supporters in Alabama and Republicans in Congress have only grown deeper.
It’s hard to know whether Moore can or will win the special election. What we do know is that there is so much uncertainty surrounding the vote that moving the race to the Toss Up is the best way to describe where this race is today. CONT.
