On Friday, Alabama Governor Kay Ivey revealed that she plans on voting for GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore. She says she believes the allegations but will still vote for him because he’s a Republican.
Her revelation comes as eight women accused Moore of sexually harassing or assaulting them. Most of the allegations are from when the women were in their teens.
As the governor was talking to reporters she stated, “I’m going to cast my ballot on December the 12th, and I do believe the nominee of the party is the one I’ll vote for.”
She believes that her state needs to send a Republican to Washington.
She continued, “I believe in the Republican Party, what we stand for, and most important, we need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions. So that’s what I plan to do, vote for Republican nominee Roy Moore.”
She added that she is disturbed by the allegations against Moore and believes his accusers.

She stated, “I certainly have no reason to disbelieve any of them. The timing is a little curious. But at the same time, I have no reason to disbelieve them.”
On Thursday, the Republican party released a statement saying that it plans on standing with Roy Moore.
However, a handful of senior congressional Republicans including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan have called on Moore to step aside.
