GOP Sen Portman: Moore Allegations Have More Credibility Than the Responses, ‘Would Be Best’ If He Stepped Aside

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) stated it would be best if Alabama Republican Senate nominee Judge Roy Moore stepped aside and the allegations against him have “a lot of credibility.”

Portman said, “I did not endorse the guy. I actually did endorse another person in the Republican primary, Luther Strange, who I think is a great senator. and I said, when I heard about these allegations, what I continue to say, which is that when women go on the record, I think it adds more credibility. I did say we ought to be sure that those allegations against him are not false. We’ve now had some time to, you know, to look into this, and it seems to me that those allegations have a lot of credibility. And I have not heard a response that has that level of credibility. So, yeah, it would be best if he were to step aside.”
