U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy of Louisiana has withdrawn his support for Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama over allegations of sexual misconduct by Moore years ago.

Sen. Pat Toomey, Republican of Pennsylvania, suggested on NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that there could be a write-in campaign for unusual because it's too late to remove Moore's name from the ballot. To that, Moore responds with, "Alright, if everyone thinks I did it, I'll marry her!"

"You know, this is a bad situation, almost 40-year-old allegation, we'll probably never know for sure exactly what happened", said Toomey, R-Pa, told NBC. Moore, now 70, has denied any wrongdoing.

Moore faces Democrat Doug Jones, 63, a former US attorney, in a special election on December 12 to fill the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, now the USA attorney general. The incidents were first reported by The Washington Post. Like Pence, Sessions puts on the pressure for Moore to drop out of the race. Still, in an interview with conservative radio host Sean Hannity, he did not wholly rule out dating teenage girls when he was in his early 30s.

The story has stirred concern among anxious GOP officials in Washington in a key race to fill the Senate seat once held by Jeff Sessions, now the USA attorney general.

Other Republicans officials have called for Moore to leave the race if the allegations are true.

Many Republican lawmakers had already distanced themselves from Moore, who was twice removed as chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for defying federal court rulings.

"There's a special place in hell for those who actually perpetrate these crimes, and I think Roy Moore has to do more explaining than he has done so far", White House Director of Legislative Affairs Marc Short told NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday.
