Indiana Sen. Todd Young calls on Roy Moore to drop out

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Indiana Sen. Todd Young joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling on embattled Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore to drop out of the race.

Moore has been accused of having sexual contact with two teenage girls and pursuing three others decades ago. But so far he has denied the allegations, first reported by The Washington Post, and refuses to drop out of the Alabama Senate race.

Young said in a series of tweets Monday that the allegations "remain far more persuasive" than Moore's denials.

Young says that "disqualifies" Moore from serving in the Senate. He also said that if Moore does not step aside, the Senate will "need to act" to protect its integrity.

Moore has said he is the victim of a "witch hunt."
