Steve Bannon continued his campaign for Roy Moore on Monday and threw in a riff on first daughter Ivanka Trump's apparent denouncement of the Alabama U.S. Senate candidate, reports The Hill.
Bannon said during a rally that there is "special place in hell for Republicans who should know better."
The message comes after Ivanka, Alabama Senator Richard Shelby, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke out against the candidate.
Ivanka's was among the more passionate anti-Moore statements. 
"There's a special place in hell for people who prey on children. I've yet to see a valid explanation and I have no reason to doubt the victims' accounts," the first daughter and adviser to the president said in an interview with the Associated Press.
Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct by numerous women, one of whom said she was just 14 when Moore, who was in his 30s at the time, "touched her sexually," notes The Hill.
ABC News reports that he has denied those allegations and, in recent times, has enjoyed the full support of President Trump.
How much impact that endorsement will have on the results of the Tuesday election remains unknown.
Moore and his Democratic opponent Doug Jones have largely fared equally well in voter surveys, according to the statistics site FiveThirtyEight.
