Two Republican members of the United States Senate have withdrawn their support for Roy Moore after a report in the Washington Post that contains accusations of inappropriate sexual contact by Moore against a 14-year-old girl in 1979.

Senators Mike Lee of Utah and Steve Daines of Montana announced Friday on Twitter they are no longer endorsing Moore.

The Moore campaign released a statement Friday denying any wrongdoing.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee also removed its name from a joint fundraising committee for Moore on Friday.
