McConnell on Roy Moore Allegations: I Believe The Women; Mounting A Write-In Campaign "An Option"


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he believes the women accusing candidate Roy Moore of sexual contact with a minor, and calls on Moore to step down from the race for Senate in Alabama:

REPORTER: Is the burden [of proof] on Moore to prove these [allegations] false, versus someone to prove these are true in this situation? Or do you believe these allegations to be true?

SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL: I believe the women, yes...

REPORTER: Are you calling for him to step down from the Senate race?

MCCONNELL: I did, I think he should step aside.

REPORTER: Are you encouraging a write-in campaign with Sen. Strange?

MCCONNELL: That is an option. We're looking at whether or not there is someone who could mount a write-in campaign successfully.
