“The state of Alabama deserves better,” he said. “There is a lot of smoke” in reference to the accusations against Moore. “Got somewhere a fire somewhere.”
If Alabamians choose Jones, he’s the first democratic senator in Alabama would be more than two decades. Trump has been in support of Moore, out of fear that a loss in the state of Alabama would narrow the GOP majority in the Senate.
Moore has seen his lead in the polls slip in the midst of the accusations, but the trump card is the endorsement of the past week could be the last-minute-jerk-his campaign takes him over the edge.
“To give Democrats a rejection, a vote for massive tax cuts, why do we need to win Republican Roy Moore, in Alabama. We need to stop his voice crime, illegal immigration, border, wall, military, Pro-life, V. A., judge, 2. Change, and more. No Jones, Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!” Trump tweeted last week, following weeks of silence in respect to the Alabama race.
