GOP governor supporting Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama Senate race

Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker (R) is supporting Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama Senate race over his Republican opponent, Roy Moore.

“I certainly don’t want to see Roy Moore win,” Baker said Monday, according to WBUR.

“That means, obviously, that I would be supporting the alternative.”

Baker said that, from the beginning, he didn’t think Moore, who is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, was fit for office.

A woman accused Moore of initiating a sexual encounter with her when she was 14 and he was 32. Other women have also come forward to allege they had inappropriate contact with Moore when they were teenagers, including one who accused the former judge of sexually assaulting her when she was 16.

Moore has repeatedly denied the allegations against him.

He also recorded a robocall in support of the GOP Senate candidate.

Baker said after the allegations against Moore surfaced that he thought Moore should step down.

“And if he doesn’t step down, I don’t think he should sit,” Baker told WGBH last month.
