MONTGOMERY, Ala. -- Roy Moore's wife is standing by her man.

"He will not step down," Kayla Moore, 56, insisted at a "Worm for Moore" rally in Montgomery, Ala., on Friday, for her husband, Roy Moore, GOP candidate for as special Senate race.

“I have been married to my husband for over 32 years,"she said, adding, "He was a graduate of West Point and served our country in Vietnam and he has always been an officer and a gentleman. He is a loving father and a grandfather. Most important, he is a Christian."

Kayla Moore also criticized the media, slamming The Washington Post for breaking the story that a woman accused Moore of sexual assault when she was 14 and he was 32. Eight other women have also come forward, accusing Moore of assaulting them.
