Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) said Thursday she has talked to Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) about running a write-in campaign in the wake of an explosive new report that Roy Moore, the GOP candidate for Senate in Alabama, had inappropriate encounters with teenage girls.

Murkowski's comment follows a Washington Post story published Thursday detailing several women's accounts of Moore's pursuit of relationships while they were teenagers. According to the report, Moore touched Leigh Corfman, then 14, over her bra and underpants when he was 32 and serving as an assistant district attorney.
