"Y'all can keep trotting them out if you want to, but we're not going to talk about that", Young said, referring to reporters' efforts to ask questions.

Moore, who initially appeared to be headed for an easy victory in a reliably Republican state, has trailed Jones in recent polls ahead of the December 12 election.

Again, that runs directly counter to the message from many establishment Republicans - that it isn't worth sacrificing principle exclusively to hold control of a single Senate seat.

"When you're a star, they let you do it", Mr Trump said on the Access Hollywood tape.
