McConnell spoke to reporters Monday after visiting a plant in Kentucky. He says he believes the women who were quoted in a Washington Post story about Moore’s past relationships with them as young women.

Previously McConnell had said Moore should step aside if the allegations were proven true.

He says Republicans are looking at a write-in option in Alabama.

McConnell's comments come as attorney Gloria Allred prepared for a news conference in New York with another accuser who claims Moore sexually assaulted her while she was a minor.

The news conference is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. CST.
