N.C. Senator Tillis calls for ethics investigation if Moore is elected

WASHINGTON D.C. — Although the Republican National Committee has resumed its support for Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, North Carolina GOP Sen. Thom Tillis said the Senate Republicans’ campaign arm will be “standing firm” against helping Moore and called for an ethics investigation into allegations of sexual assault and misconduct into their nominee if he is elected.

“I think we have to first move with an ethics investigation,” Tillis said on BuzzFeed News’ Twitter morning show AM to DM. “We need to examine the facts and let those facts lead us where they may.”

Tillis had previously called on Moore to withdraw from the race, but now thinks there’s little his colleagues can do until after next week’s election.
