BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – Every time he has run state-wide office here, Roy Moore, had the voice of Johnny Williams’.
“I’ve seen him fight them fires, and I can only believe in him,” the 77-year-old retired bus-charter-company owners, said in an interview.
Moore, Alabama’s Senate, Republican candidate, has been bleeding support from some conservatives in the weeks since the allegations made in the past surfaced of sexual misconduct.
But the candidate is known to be loyal supporters who are not, has long left the Christian conservative support in the statewide race for chief justice, Governor and senator for two decades.
“I think anyone who tries this thing together, to take him, and we do not believe that it is down here,” said Williams, who lives in Pike Road.

Roy Moore has denied the allegations that he wanted to engaged in sexual activity or romantic relationships with teenage girls when he was in his thirties.
“I am a policy voter,” said the 68-year-old Ann Eubanks of Birmingham, who leads a tea party group. “And I refuse to send me, a far-left-liberal-democratic Congress. There is too much on the game in this country at this time with the balance of the Senate to the critical mass.”
Eubanks cited future nominations to the Supreme Court for the repeal of ObamaCare, the construction of the wall and the immigration proposals on topics that the President will need every vote he can muster in the Senate.
“It’s much bigger than Roy Moore,” Eubanks said. “It is the direction of our country.”
Still, Moore is struggling to win the support of the other Alabama voters, the votes in the rule of the Republicans, what has made the race much closer than expected.
Democratic candidate, Doug Jones has seen his poll numbers rise in the middle of the Roy Moore allegations.
Coffee and waffles in a waffle house, here’s 66-year-old Richard Barnett said he was not a fan of Moore, before the allegations came up and not vote for him, although he usually chooses the Republicans.
“The last Democrat I voted for Jimmy Carter,” said Barnett, the general manager of metals and welding company.
Barnett said he has to represent “no confidence in Roy Moore the ability, the majority of the people,” and would probably write-in Sr., Luther Strange, instead of lost to Moore in the primary school.
He said the Hoover, Alabama community in which he lives, is mostly the Republicans, but he saw no public support for Moore neighbors lawn.
“You don’t see Roy Moore signs”, Barnett said. “You see, some for Doug Jones. It is very, very unusual.”
At another table at the diner on Friday, a mother-of-Alabaster, who gave her name as Sandra, was the Breakfast with her husband. She said she is “100 percent behind Donald Trump,” but, how will you vote on Tuesday.
“Deep down, I wish Luther Strange, the candidate was,” she said.
“I’ve seen him fight them fires, and I can only believe in him.”
