House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that Alabama GOP Senate nominee Roy Moore should drop out of the race, saying he’s betraying the very people he says he’s trying to represent.

“These allegations are credible,” Mr. Ryan said, referring to the multiple women who have come forward to say Mr. Moore pursued relationships with them when he was in his 30s and they were teens.

“If he cares about the values and the people he claims to care about, then he should step aside,” Mr. Ryan said.

Mr. Moore has denied the allegations and vowed to stay in the race, blaming Republicans in Washington, who were not fans of his candidacy from the start, for trying to undermine him.
