Moore denies that he had sexual contact with the 14-year-old and also denies allegations he pursued relationships with other teenage girls while he was in his 30s.
"Roy Moore will be imperative to passing a conservative agenda, and we support him keeping this seat in Republican hands", Gardner said in a statement tweeted out by reporters after Moore had been declared the victor in a hard-fought primary.
Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell said Moore should withdraw from the race 'if these allegations are true'. Senator Cory Gardner of Colorado, who runs the National Republican Senate Committee, also put out a statement saying: "The allegations against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore are deeply troubling".
Leigh Corfman said she was sitting with her mother outside a courtroom in Etowah County, Alabama, when Moore introduced himself.
Corfman said he then asked her about her interests, and asked for her phone number.
She said of Moore at the time: 'He was charming and smiley.' After both meetings, she says she asked Moore to take her home and he did. He took off her shirt and touched her bra and underwear while also guiding her hand over his trousers, Ms. Corfman told The Post. While none of the women report having sex with Moore, all say they were inappropriately touched and had other unwanted advances.

Facebook asks users to upload nudes to fight revenge porn

The Post points out that enticing a child under 16 years of age into a home with the objective of proposing sexual contact is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison. Those laws existed at the time of the alleged 1979 encounter between Corfman and Moore, but the statute of limitations is now expired. Corfman never filed a police report. Moore is facing Democratic nominee Doug Jones, an attorney who is trailing by a small margin in most polls.
"These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign", Moore said. "National liberal organizations know their chosen candidate Doug Jones is in a death spiral, and this is their last ditch Hail Mary".
"Judge Roy Moore has endured the most outlandish attacks on any candidate in the modern political arena, but this story in today's Washington Post alleging sexual impropriety takes the cake", its statement added. He should immediately step aside and allow the people of Alabama to elect a candidate they can be proud of, ' McCain said in a statement.
"The Judge has been married to Kayla for almost 33 years, has 4 children, and 5 grandchildren".
Moore, who was twice ousted as Alabama's chief justice, beat GOP establishment favorite Sen. After over 40 years of public service, if any of these allegations were true, they would have been made public long before now.
(You can't miss him.) Nobody wanted Moore to win except religious fanatics and Trumpists.
The intensity of the reaction may partly reflect lingering bad feelings from the primary contest between odd and Moore, held in late September, that pitted much of the Republican establishment - including President Donald Trump - behind unusual and the GOP's more conservative flank - including former Trump strategist Steve Bannon - behind odd.
