If Republican Roy Moore is victorious in Tuesday's Alabama special election, the Senate GOP plans to meet Wednesday to discuss what to do with the man who has been accused by several women of sexual misconduct.

Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, told The Hill the caucus will get together at 10 a.m. ET on Wednesday to plan their next moves if Moore wins.

"I think that's part of the discussion, yes," Cornyn said.

A spokesman for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell would not comment to The Hill until after the election was decided.

Moore is going against Democrat Doug Jones in the special election that will decide who occupies the seat once held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Multiple women have come forward to say Moore either sexually assaulted or harassed them when they were teenagers and he was in his early 30s.

The alleged incidents date back to the late 1970s.
