Debbie Gibson, who said she dated Senate candidate Roy Moore when she was 17 and he was 34, has come forward with a graduation card that Roy Moore allegedly wrote to her as evidence of their relationship, the Washington Post reports. The note on the card reads, "Happy graduation Debbie. I wanted to give you this card myself. I know that you'll be a success in anything you do. Roy."

Why this matters: Since the Post first reported on allegations against Moore from 4 women, 5 more have come forward. Gibson says she decided to come forward after Moore denied knowing any of the women featured in news reports and in an interview with Sean Hannity denied ever dating Gibson. "He called me a liar," Gibson told the post. "Roy Moore made an egregious mistake to attack that one thing — my integrity." The Moore campaign did not respond to numerous requests from the Post for comment for this story.

With President Trump planning to nominate his third Supreme Court justice nominee by next week, key Republican senators are indicating their stance on replacing the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg just over six weeks out from Election Day.

The big picture: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) has vowed that "Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate." But Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) told Alaska Public Media, "I would not vote to confirm a Supreme Court nominee. We are 50 some days away from an election."
