Sen. Lindsay Graham said Monday in a CNN interview that if Roy Moore — accused of sexual misconduct by nine women — is elected to the U.S. Senate Tuesday, his victory will “define the 2018 elections.” Republican candidates will be “asked about a thousand times” about Moore, he said.
“Roy Moore will be the gift that keeps on giving for Democrats … [T]o think you can elect Roy Moore without getting the baggage of Roy Moore is pretty naive. I wish he would have stepped aside … We’ll see what the people of Alabama decide.”
Graham goes to discuss the option of expelling Moore.
