Most Alabama Republicans say they are voting for Roy Moore

MONTGOMERY, Ala.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Most statewide Republican officeholders in Alabama say they’re voting for Roy Moore for U.S. Senate.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey says she intends to vote for the embattled Moore, as do the state attorney general, auditor, secretary of state, agriculture commissioner and public service commission president. State Treasurer Young Boozer couldn’t be reached for comment.

But the state’s senior U.S. senator didn’t vote for Moore. Sen. Richard Shelby says he instead wrote in the name of another Republican when he voted by absentee ballot.

Moore is fighting for his political life following allegations that he molested young women and tried to date teen girls decades ago while in his 30s. He has denied the allegations. Polls show him in a tight race with Democrat Doug Jones.
