Roy Moore could do more damage to the Republican brand than an Alabama Senate seat is worth, which is a major concern for Republicans as Moore tries to weather allegations saying he initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl in 1979. Moore was 32 at the time.
He called the charges "completely false" in a statement released by his campaign on Thursday.
If Moore loses the seat to Democrat Doug Jones in next month's special election, it could threaten the GOP agenda in Congress.
However, winning the seat could put other Republican candidates in jeopardy..
