Paul Ryan speaks out on Moore

Lodi News-Sentinel - - State/Nation - By Lind­sey McPher­son

WASHINGTON — House Speaker Paul D. Ryan is the lat­est in a grow­ing group of GOP lead­ers to call for Alabama GOP Se­nate nom­i­nee Roy Moore to drop out of the race amid al­le­ga­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct.

“He should step aside,” Ryan, R-Wis., said. “Th­ese al­le­ga­tions are cred­i­ble. If he cares about the val­ues that he claims to care about, then he should step aside.”

Moore won the GOP nod over Rep. Mo Brooks and ap­pointed in­cum­bent Sen. Luther Strange.

On Mon­day, Se­nate Ma­jor­ity Leader Mitch McCon­nell also called for Moore to end his bid.
