'Women for Moore' hold support rally at AL Capitol

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Under a cool, Friday morning sun, the 'Women for Moore' group stood on the Alabama Capitol steps and stood for Roy Moore.

"We do find the timing of these narratives surrounding these articles to be suspect," said Becky Gerritson, who organized the rally and founded the Wetumpka Tea Party.

"He has never been anything but respectful and polite to me," Ann Eubank, a conservative activist added.

"And what we find is the people who know Judge Roy Moore the best are the ones standing with him now," said another supporter.

In all, 10 women spoke, taking turns not only supporting Moore but being a witness to his character.

"I have been married to my husband, Judge Roy Moore for over 32 years," said Moore's wife, Kayla. She rounded out the speakers in a news conference that lasted a little more than 30 minutes.

"He was a graduate of West Point, served his country in Vietnam and he has always been an officer and a gentleman," Mrs. Moore said.

Those who didn't speak made their feelings known through poster boards. Roy Moore himself was not part of the group.

The candidate continues to face a political storm over allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls in the 1970s, decades ago.

President Donald Trump said the people of Alabama should decide Moore's political fate, not Washington.

The election is just three and a half weeks away.

Some polls have indicated Roy Moore's opponent, Democratic Doug Jones, is pulling away in the race for U.S. Senate.

The election is Dec. 12.
