Trump to record robocall for Roy Moore

Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones says Tuesday's election against Republican Roy Moore will send a message far beyond Alabama's borders.

In his speech, Trump did not directly address the sexual harassment allegations against Moore, but he mocked the fact that one of Moore's accusers acknowledged on Friday that part of an inscription that she had said Moore had written in her high school yearbook was in fact penned by her.

"People are realising that they don't have to vote Republican", Howell said.

He was later joined by New Jersey Sen. He has built a large following among some evangelical voters from two failed gambits: upholding a display of the Ten Commandments in a state building and trying to block same-sex marriage in Alabama.

Trump said Moore's Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, is a "total puppet" of Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer and House of Representatives Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.

President Donald Trump has endorsed Mr Moore, a former judge, and called on supporters to ensure the election of someone who supports his "Make America Great Again" agenda.

"The President has recorded a robocall for Roy Moore's Senate campaign", White House deputy press secretary Raj Shah said in a statement Saturday. He has denied the allegations.

The state's most influential politician, Republican U.S. Sen.

The barb was a nod to those who have pointed out the seeming inequity of consequences for those accused of sexual misconduct. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but in about three years and 42 days.

The timing of the special election for the seat long held by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions was decided months ago by Gov. Kay Ivey.

Beneath Jones' biracial and bipartisan balancing act is a complex numbers game that has vexed Alabama Democrats for decades.

It's not hard to find people who know Moore, such as Linda Fain, a librarian who said she went out several times with him and his wife.

Such dynamics are hard to overcome, said Democratic strategist Keenan Pontoni, who managed the campaign of Georgia congressional hopeful Jon Ossoff earlier this year.

"The only way you win in these kinds of districts and states is a coalition that is obviously very hard to put together", Pontoni said. When it got to the 14-year-old story, that was enough for me. Unlike many states, Alabama doesn't offer early voting. After Trump made it official on Monday (Tuesday NZT) that he supports Moore, the Republican National Committee turned back on the spigot of cash to help Moore win.

Many voters on the list provided by the campaign didn't answer their doors Saturday morning. I think everybody knows how I feel about Judge Moore.

Oweda Clark, who lives just around the corner from 44th Place North, admits it's hard being a Democrat in Alabama. "Jones will always vote against what we must do for our Country".

"A big contingent of very enthusiastic Roy Moore fans at the rally last night", he wrote. Nelson says the yearbook entry shows that they were acquainted.
