WASHINGTON (AP) — Alabama Republican Roy Moore says it’s Mitch McConnell who should quit, not him.

Moore is responding to McConnell, the Senate majority leader, who says he believes Moore’s accusers and thinks he should drop out of the race for Senate. At issue is a Washington Post story saying Moore had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl and pursued romantic relationships with other teenage girls decades ago.

Moore says on Twitter: “The person who should step aside is @SenateMajLdr Mitch McConnell. He has failed conservatives and must be replaced. #DrainTheSwamp.”

The election is Dec. 12 and Moore’s name remains on the Alabama ballot.

Moore’s “drain the swamp” hashtag is popular with President Donald Trump and his supporters.
