The Republican National Committee has pulled out of the joint fundraising agreement with AL Republican Roy Moore'south campaign, according to Federal Election Commission paperwork filed Tuesday.

The move comes amid growing pressure for the Republican Party to ditch the candidate accused of sexually touching minors.

The RNC is number longer listed as an entity in the joint fundraising agreement with Moore'south campaign and the AL Republican Party. The National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) already backed out of the agreement latest week, and there had been calls for the RNC to to the same. Senate Majority Boss Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, has called on Moore to drop out, as has Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin. NRSC Chairman Sen. Cory Gardner, R-Colorado, has said the party should expel Moore from the Senate if he's elected.

The GOP is severing financial ties with Moore after allegations from five women that Moore inappropriately pursued them when they were teens and he was in his thirty, including two women who claim Moore sexually touched them against their wishes. The allegations have rocked Capitol Hill, with Republicans scrambling to determine what to do next. The special election race against Democrat Doug Jones is less than one mo far on Dec. twelve.

On Tuesday, Jones' campaign released a new ad in which some self-proclaimed Republicans declare they'll be voting for Jones over Moore, implying their lost faith in the Republican candidate amid the allegations.

"You read the legend and it just shakes you," says one voter, in what appears to be interpreted as the original WA Post legend accusing Moore of sexually touching a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.

Moore has called the allegations fake news, and his campaign has continued fundraising in the wake of the women'south accusations.

Moore will create his first major appearance since the allegations Tuesday night, addressing an audience at the God Rescue America Conference in Jackson, Alabama.
