MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Faith2Action hosted a news conference Thursday afternoon in support of Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore. The president of Fath2Action, Janet Porter, said they would not be addressing the allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore though some supporters brought it up.

Moore and his wife Kayla were present at the event and the former judge made remarks towards the end. He mentioned that The Washington Post is not evidence and that the accusations against him are false.  Reporters were invited to ask questions afterward but once the sexual misconduct allegations were brought up, Moore walked out of the room.

The conference was held at the Birmingham Marriott and lasted about an hour and a half. Speakers included Dr. Alan Keyes of Renew America, Rabbi Noson Shmuel Leiter, Pastor David Floyd of Marvin Parkway Baptist Church in Opelika, and Pastor Tom Brown of First Baptist Church in Gallant. Most of those who spoke were from out of state. Many of those who spoke said the allegations against him were false and that “the truth will set him free.”
