Roy Moore's attorney tries to discredit accuser

Kayla Moore, the wife of Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, speaks out at a press conference in Alabama about the sexual assault accusations against her husband.

She attributed her decision to a desire to preserve the advantage Republicans hold over Democrats in the Senate, which has enabled them to advance key judicial nominations and other elements of the GOP agenda. That could threaten the Republicans' slim majority in the Senate.

Ivey has previously been noncommittal about voting for Moore amid accusations he sexually molested young women and tried to date teenage girls.

Moore allies on the right have also attempted to discredit specific allegations against the candidate.

Numerous women accused Moore in recent days of pursuing sexual and romantic relations with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.

"Do I?" Sanders asked. But, she questioned the timing of them, calling it: "a little curious".

Long a divisive figure in his home state, Moore was twice elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and twice removed from those duties because of stands against gay marriage and for the display of the Ten Commandments in a public building.

Moore's vocal stance came after a support rally featuring Alabama religious leaders, including Rabbi Noson Leiter, who praised Moore's defense of "biblical values and not perversion", and his fight against "transgender bathroom bills LGBT indoctrination in schools and much more".

"He will not step down". "He will continue to take his case straight to the people of Alabama".

Moore talked briefly after about 90 minutes of speeches and sermons from supporters in the clergy who painted Moore as a righteous crusader and his detractors as immoral backers of a corrupt status quo.

"Most of the negative has been from out of state".

"I think the President has certainly a lot more insight into what he personally did or didn't do", Sanders said.

She dubbed a New Yorker story that suggested the former judge was barred from an Alabama mall a "hit piece", saying it "would have been nice if the press would find out the truth first before they run with gossip".

Democratic nominee Doug Jones, who campaigned in the southeastern part of the state on Friday, criticized Ivey's justification for supporting Moore.
