"I did not respond to any of Mr. Moore's flirtatious behavior". After that, Nelson said, she either fell or was pushed out of his vehicle and onto the pavement, and he drove away.

Nelson said she'd voluntarily testify to her claims under oath - and Allred called on the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold a public hearing into Moore's alleged actions.

"I tried to open my vehicle door to leave, but he reached over and he locked it so I could not get out".

"On the other hand, you have a very, very flawed candidate in Roy Moore, which is why many people are calling upon him to step down, but I'm going to leave this to the people of Alabama".

"He was also trying to pull my shirt off", the visibly upset Nelson continued. "I think he did cocaine". She described a harrowing chain of events that ended with Moore attempting to force her into a sex act in a parked auto - an episode that, she said, left her with severe bruising on her neck. Susan Collins, who in a statement on Twitter Monday said she "did not find Moore's denials to be convincing". She said he groped her, then squeezed her neck.

But a write-in candidacy would be complicated by the fact that Moore's name has already been printed on absentee voter ballots and the deadline for withdrawal from the race has long since passed.

Nelson and Allred also referenced a note Moore allegedly wrote in Nelson's yearbook before the incident, in which he called her "sweet" and "beautiful". "Allred was the attorney who claims credit for giving us Roe v. Wade which has resulted in the murder of tens of millions of unborn babies", Moore campaign chairman Bill Armistead said in a statement released before Allred's press conference began. It says Moore is innocent and "has never had any sexual misconduct with anyone".

"I stand with the Majority Leader on this", Utah Republican Senator Orrin Hatch tweeted on Monday.

GOP leaders have been questioned over whether they maintain support for Moore despite the allegations, and on Monday, Sen. "I had tears running down my face". "If he refuses to withdraw and wins, the Senate should vote to expel him, because he does not meet the ethical and moral requirements of the United States Senate", Gardner said.

The White House, pointedly noting that President Donald Trump did not back Moore during the primary, said Trump will likely weigh in on the Senate race when he returns from Asia later this week.

The story stirred concern among anxious GOP officials in Washington in a key race to fill the Senate seat once held by Jeff Sessions, now the USA attorney general.

Moore denies the allegations, but didn't entirely dispute dating girls that young in a radio interview with Sean Hannity on Friday.
