Questions whether GOP repudiated Roy Moore

The line in Jay Fleitman’s column about Roy Moore (“Lack of due process in Alabama allegations,” Dec. 5) that jumped out at me was the following: “Politicians in his own party en masse have repudiated his candidacy in response to these accusations, and the Senate Republican leadership has suggested expelling him should he win the election.”

Really? Monday the leader of the Republicans, Donald Trump, seemed to give a full-throated endorsement of Moore. The Republican leader of the Senate, Mitch McConnell, did the same. The Republican National Committee is now sending financial support to Moore.

That doesn’t sound like a repudiation to me.
