Senate Republican leaders and the Trump administration were scrambling on Tuesday to find a way to prevent Roy Moore from winning Alabama's U.S. Senate race without giving up a critical seat to the Democrats.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he has been in talks for the past several days with President Trump, Vice President Pence and Trump Chief of Staff John Kelly about how to handle the matter.
Trump called McConnell from Vietnam on Friday to discuss the situation, McConnell said.
The White House and Senate GOP leaders will huddle further over the matter, McConnell said.
That would cost the 52-seat Senate Republican majority a critically needed vote.
