HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore made a stop in the Rocket City Sunday evening to attend a Q&A forum presented by the Christian Citizen Task Force.

Journalists were not allowed inside the event held at Huntsville Christian Academy, however, WHNT was able to speak with some voters who attended the event afterward.

"I didn't have a change in my opinion of Judge Roy Moore. I really don't have one. I haven't formed one yet. I'm a Democrat, I'm not a Republican. But I wanted to hear his views unfiltered and unedited," said Don Daniel.

Voters said Moore did mention the allegations of sexual misconduct that were made against him in the Washington Post.

"He denied them, but besides that, he also said that he was considering suing the Washington Post over it," said Nate Matthews.

Matthews is an 18-year-old who plans to cast a ballot in the special election on December 12th. He said Moore's response to the allegations reaffirmed his belief that they are false.

"When they first came out I thought that maybe they were true. But after hearing him speak I'm sure he's telling the truth."

Tom Fredricks, a Republican running for the District 4 seat for the Alabama House of Representatives, believes the idea that Luther Strange should be a write-in candidate will not become a reality at the polls.

"Write-in is a suggestion to try to split the Republican vote. That ain't happening either."

Fredricks wants the country to know these allegations won't stop Moore from becoming Alabama's next U.S Senator.

"Keep watching the state of Alabama. We've got our game on. We are going to send Roy Moore to the U.S. Senate and we are going to have an impact on national politics for years to come"

WHNT reached out to Moore's campaign for an explanation as to why journalists weren't allowed inside the event. We have not received a response yet.
