- Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore was interviewed by a 12-year-old girl.
- He has been accused of sexual misconduct with teenage girls when he was in his 30s.
- The interview stands to be perhaps the last campaign sit-down for the Republican nominee.
Former judge Roy Moore has largely avoided campaigning in the final weeks of the Alabama Senate race, dodging questions from reporters and staying away from large campaign events.
But the Republican nominee made time in one of his last campaign interviews for a sit-down appearance with a 12-year-old girl.
America First, a super PAC that supports President Donald Trump, sent a young supporter sporting a “Make America Great Again” hat down to Alabama to interview the candidate “to show that there are a wide range of people who support Judge Roy Moore.”
Twelve-year-old Millie March interviewed Moore and his campaign manager about various issues, including abortion, immigration, taxes, religious freedom, trade, and “military readiness.”
“Are you going to support President Trump and help him build the wall?” March asked.
“Yes,” Moore replied. “I think we need something and it can be stopped sooner than that with the military.”
Moore is facing numerous allegations of sexual misconduct with teenage girls while he was in his 30s. He has denied the allegations and continued to stay in the race despite calls for him to drop out.
But he’s largely avoided questions from journalists from non-conservative outlets in the lead-up to Tuesday’s race.
