The Democratic candidate running against Republican Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race has Sen. Jeff Flake's, R-Ariz., support, The Hill reported Monday.

"If this choice is between Roy Moore and a Democrat, a Democrat," Flake told reporters. "For sure."

Moore has been battling allegations reported last week by The Washington Post he had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl decades ago when he was in his 30s and pursued romantic relationships with three other teenagers.

A new accuser came forward Monday saying Moore, now 70, sexually assaulted her in the 1970s.

Moore denied ever knowing Nelson.

"I can tell you without hesitation this is absolutely false," Moore told reporters. "I never did what she said I did. I don’t even know the woman. I don’t know anything about her."

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Moore should quit the contest, and National Republican Senatorial Committee Chair Cory Gardner said if Moore refuses to withdraw and wins, "the Senate should vote to expel him."

Flake backed Gardner's call to expel Moore, saying "I don't think it will get to that, but if it does, yes."
