Republican establishment bails on Alabama candidate after sex allegationsThe national campaign wing for U.S. Senate Republicans cut fund-raising ties on Friday with Roy Moore, the party's nominee for a special Senate race in Alabama, a day after sexual misconduct allegations upended his front-runner bid for the seat.
