Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Sunday said he will “let the people of Alabama make the call” on whether Senate Candidate Roy Moore should be in the Senate.
McConnell added that if Moore wins, the Senate Ethics Committee would consider the allegations of sexual misconduct against him,
“I think we’re going to let the people of Alabama decide a week from Tuesday who they want to send to the Senate, and then we’ll address the matter appropriately,” McConnell said during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week.”
“I’m confident they’ll come up with the right conclusion.” McConnell said referring to the Ethics Committee.
Moore took to Twitter to respond to McConnell’s statement Sunday evening, slamming the Senate Majority Leader’s record in Alabama.
“The people of Alabama have rejected you twice Mitch, on December 12th they will do it again,” Moore tweeted.
