Republican U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and Gov. Henry McMaster have called for GOP candidate for Senate from Alabama Roy Moore to end his campaign as sexual allegations mount against him. U.S. Sen. Tim Scott has said that Moore should step aside if allegations are true. Republican candidate for governor Catherine Templeton, however, won't say whether she thinks Moore should remain a candidate for Senate as reports continue to mount that the former prosecutor and judge initiated sexual encounters with teenage girls in the past. "We've got enough to deal with," Templeton said yesterday, explaining that Alabama voters will soon decide. Source: P&C
