Sen. Boozman Says Roy Moore Should Withdraw from Race

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KNWA) -- Sen. John Boozman, R-Arkansas, said Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore should withdraw from the race following allegations of sexual misconduct with underage girls. 

The Arkansas senator said while expelling Moore from the U.S. Senate should he win his December election is "hypothetical" at this point, he should withdraw. 

KNWA/KFTA reached out to Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Arkansas, about the Alabama election, and his office didn't return any requests for comment. 

The New York Times reports Cotton is one of three senators who haven't publicly commented on the allegations. The other two are Thad Cochran, R-Mississippi and Rand Paul, R-Kentucky. 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, have both said Moore should withdraw.
