The joint fundraising committee now only lists Moore's campaign, the Alabama Republican Party and the Republican National Committee as the beneficiaries. The information was in a filing to the Federal Election Commission on Friday.

Moore's campaign did not immediately respond Friday to a request for comment about the NRSC's decision to abandon the race.

The allegations against Moore - which he has denied - have prompted other Republicans to weigh in.

He first became a national figure in the early 2000s, when he lost his position as Alabama chief justice after refusing a court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from outside the courthouse.

"Right now there is a lot of accusations being made against a lot of people", said Randall Mccaffrey. Three other women also told the Post that Moore pursued them when they were between the ages of 16 and 18 and he was in his early 30s. "This garbage is the very definition of fake news".

As of Friday morning, the senators' pictures still appear on the online link to Moore's fundraising appeal.

Those who think Moore should be replaced have little hope of that happening.

Several post-18 colleges are located on the campus, including the International Institute of Trade and Development. The man acted "deliberately" but was not on the list of known terrorists, AFP reported .

Henry said he believes legal action should be considered against Moore's accusers, finding their story unbelievable.

"Moore later sent out a series of tweets blaming "The Obama-Clinton Machine's liberal media lapdogs, ' referring to 'the forces of evil" arrayed against him and fellow conservatives who 'are in the midst of a spiritual battle.'".

"I will hold judgment until we know the facts", Alabama Republican Gov. Kay Ivey said Thursday evening.

"These allegations are completely false and misleading but more than that it hurts me personally, you know- I'm a father", Moore said in an interview with Sean Hannity.

The statement also notes that Moore has been married to the same woman for 33 years and has four children and five grandchildren.

It's too late for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore's name to be removed from the ballot, even if he wants to drop out.

It's the distance that would matter to the state Republican party, and more so for the national party.

In Beijing on Thursday, Trump met Chinese President Xi Jinping to discuss trade, North Korea and a range of other topics. In a video posted Wednesday on Twitter by ESPN writer Arash Markazi, LaVar Ball said his son LiAngelo would be fine.

The revelations triggered a sharp backlash from would-be Republican colleagues on Capitol Hill, who called on Moore to quit the race if the allegations were true.

It remains to be see whether Thursday's allegations can buoy Jones' long-shot bid, which would represent a major upset for Democrats and narrow Republicans' current edge in the Senate.

The accusations were made in a report in The Washington Post on Thursday.

No matter what happens, Moore will remain on the ballot on December 12 since a candidate's name can not be removed within 76 days of the election, according to the office of Alabama's secretary of state. He adds, "If these allegations are found to be true, Roy Moore must drop out of the Alabama special Senate election". But other Republican Senators, including John McCain and Jeff Flake, have struck a tone closer to that of Romney. "You can not tell me there hasn't been an opportunity through the years to make these accusations with as many times as he's (Moore) run (for office) and been in the news".

The charge that Moore initiated sexual conduct with a 14-year-old girl when he was a 32-year-old assistant district attorney is attested to by her, on the record. They did not have sexual intercourse, according to the report.

Under Alabama law, a person who is older than 19 years of age and subjects someone under 16 but older than 12 to sexual contact would be guilty of Sexual Abuse 2nd degree, a Class A misdemeanor.
