“I would vote for Judge Moore because I wouldn’t want to vote for Doug,” Jerry Pow told the Toronto Star’s Daniel Dale in an exchange tweeted by Dale on Thursday.

Allegations against the Republican Senate candidate surfaced in an explosive report from The Washington Post Thursday, revealing accusations that decades earlier Moore had engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct with younger girls, including a 14-year-old girl when he was 32.

Other Alabama county officials also told Dale they would still vote for Moore, the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, called the story “a desperate political attack.”

Mobile County Republican Chairman John Skipper dismissed the allegations as “bunk.”

Moore is running against Democrat Doug Jones after beating Trump-backed Sen. Luther Strange in the GOP primary runoff for Alabama’s open Senate seat which was held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions until earlier this year. Some Republican lawmakers have called on Moore to step down  if the allegations are true and the GOP may still be able to remove him as a Republican candidate on the ballot if they so choose.

Moore has denied the allegations and took to Twitter to blast the report and declare he “will NEVER GIVE UP the fight!”
