Candidates for U-S Senate seat making final push

Dec 11, 2017

Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones are making their final push ahead of Tuesday's special Senate election in Alabama. Jones and Democrats are framing the election as a way for Alabama to reject its history of politicians with baggage that hampers the state. Republicans say it is about keeping a conservative hold on Alabama and not giving Democrats any opportunity to derail President Donald Trump's agenda before the 2018 midterms.

Jones says it would be disastrous to elect Moore after the former judge was accused of sexual misconduct with teenage girls. Moore denies the charges. Moore and other Republicans say Jones would be a puppet of liberal Democratic leaders out of step with Alabama.
