Roy Moore, the Republican who narrowly lost a special election to fill former Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ seat amid sexual misconduct allegations, is the leading candidate among Republican voters in the upcoming Alabama Senate race. 

A poll by Mason-Dixon Polling and Strategy published Tuesday found that 27 percent of Republicans polled would support Roy Moore’s candidacy in the 2020 election. Representatives Mo Brooks, Bradley Byrne and Gary Palmer trail behind Moore with support in the teens, while Del Marsh and Tim James were under ten percent. Moore’s support was highest among women, 31 percent of whom said they would support Moore.

Moore lost the 2017 special election after several women accused him of making sexual advances on them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s.
