WASHINGTON D.C. —  

Senator Richard Shelby (R-Al.) denounced GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore in an interview Sunday on CNN's State of the Union over the allegations Moore faces of sexually harassing and molesting young women and underage girls. Shelby told his hosts that he personally did not vote for Moore and that "Alabama deserves better," putting himself at odds with both President Trump and the Republican National Committee, which have both formally endorsed Moore's candidacy.

"I couldn't vote for Roy Moore," Shelby said, adding that "I think the women are believable. I have no reason not to believe them."

Shelby didn't vote for Doug Jones, Moore's Democratic rival, either. He said that he instead wrote in "a distinguished Republic name." He also said that if Moore won, the Senate might launch an investigation that could end in Moore's removal from the seat.

Still, the Jones campaign seized on Shelby's remarks and worked them into two 15-second digital ads. Jones frequently cites the allegations in campaign pitches, including a recent mailer that stated: "Think if a black man went after high school girls, anyone would make him a senator?"

A few other prominent Republicans have firmly rejected Moore, but top party leadership has followed Trump's lead and gotten behind the controversial former judge. The Republican National Committee restored funding for Moore's campaign after temporarily suspending it, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell retreated from an earlier statement in which he said that Moore should leave the race if the allegations are true. And Steve Bannon, former White House adviser, has been in Alabama stumping for Moore.
