Roy Moore , with the Republican National Committee rejoining Moore 's side in Alabama weeks after cutting ties with him following allegations of sexual Trump's message came on the same day that the RNC reversed itself and returned to Alabama to support Moore , less than three weeks after

Trump endorsed Moore in a tweet that blasted out to millions of his followers as well as in a follow-up call aboard Air Force One, in which the president said, "Go get 'em, Roy."

The report comes after officials at the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), the party's Senate campaign arm, told The Associated Press last month that they would not support Moore even after Trump stood by him.

The two GOP campaign groups cut ties with Moore in October, halting their financial and field support for his bid as a chorus of Republican lawmakers called on him to step aside.

Their decision to break ties with Moore came after a handful of women alleged that he made unwanted sexual advances while they were underaged minors and he was in his 30's.

Roy Moore's strategist ties Senate candidate to Trump's star

  Roy Moore's strategist ties Senate candidate to Trump's star Roy Moore's chief strategist is tying the Republican Senate candidate to President Donald Trump's star in Alabama. Dean Young said Sunday on ABC's "This Week" that the special election is "ground zero" for Trump and that Alabamians who want the president's agenda to be achieved should vote for Moore. He says: "This is Donald Trump on trial in Alabama."Trump has urged voters to back Moore over Democrat Doug Jones in Tuesday's election.Moore's candidacy has been rocked by allegations of sexual misconduct by multiple women.Young says the women aren't credible.

Richard Shelby, Alabama ’s incumbent Republican senator, told reporters last week that he had written in an alternative candidate instead of voting for Moore . The election for the Alabama Senate seat will be held on 12 December. Polls currently show Moore in a tight race against Democrat Doug Jones.

This after the TRUMP SuperPac made a .1 million dollar Alabama Ad buy today!! This ain't New York, a million dollars buys a whole schitload of ads in Alabama ! Two faced sons of bitches. Please reject their help. Their support is drying up because of their refusal to back MAGA candidates.

Early Monday, Trump endorsed Moore, saying his vote is needed to push the Republican agenda in narrowly GOP-controlled Senate.

"The President had a positive call with Judge Roy Moore during which they discussed the state of the Alabama Senate race and the President endorsed Judge Moore's campaign," said White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah.

Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations of wrongdoing.

His Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, appears to be reaping the financial surplus from the fallout. Jones's campaign raised more than $10 million in donations between Oct. 1 and Nov. 22, USA Today reported on Friday.

A spokesman for the RNC and a spokeswoman for the NRSC both did not immediately respond to a request for comment about the matter.

The NRSC, according to the Breitbart report, has still not thrown its support again behind Moore.
