On Monday night, House Freedom Caucus chair Rep. Mark Meadows said he would not rescind or retract his endorsement of Roy Moore for Senate in Alabama.

From the Washington Examiner:


“You can’t unring a bell,” said Meadows, the chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, when asked if is still endorsing Moore. “At this point, it’s up to Alabama to figure out — Washington D.C.’s not going to decide that. The people of Alabama will.”

Rep. Jim Jordan likewise declined:

“Look, I’m like everyone else,” Jordan said when asked about his endorsement. “If this turns out to be true then he should step down, but you’ve got to let the investigation play out. Ultimately, the decision is going to be in the hands of the people in Alabama.”

Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. John Cornyn, Sen. Mike Lee, and Sen. Steve Daines have withdrawn their endorsements of Moore, leaving only Rand Paul among Moore’s endorsers in the Senate.
