Shelby: Trump won't be the difference for Moore in Alabama election

Shelby: Trump won't be the difference for Moore in Alabama election

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore is interrupted by a heckler whilst defending himself against allegations of sexual misconduct.

Attorney Gloria Allred (R) and Beverly Young Nelson hold up a picture showing a message and a signature of Roy Moore during a press conference on November 13, 2017, in NY, alledging that Roy Moore sexually assaulted Nelson when she was a minor in Alabama without her consent.

Moore, who is running against Democrat Doug Jones in a special election Tuesday to fill the Senate vacancy left by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has been accused by several women of pursuing sexual relationships with them when they were teenagers, molesting a 14-year-old and sexually assaulting a 16-year-old when he was in his 30s.

Trump, who overcame allegations of sexual misconduct to win last year's presidential election, looked past the charges against Moore and formally endorsed the former Alabama judge this week for the seat once held by Jeff Sessions, now the USA attorney general. We need a Republican in the Senate.

Although Nelson has emphasized that the yearbook note itself is from Moore, her notation is likely to fuel the skepticism of Moore supporters, who have said the entire yearbook entry is a fabrication.

Jones needs to energize the state's Democratic base, which consists primarily of black voters and white progressives in urban areas, and also peel away some votes that would typically go to a Republican.

Shelby said late last month that he didn't vote for Moore, but instead wrote in a "distinguished Republican". "Ah, what are we gonna do - Gloria Allred, anytime you see her, you know something's going wrong".

Britt asked Moore if he believes the allegations were made against him because of the Ten Commandments controversy or because he said same sex marriage was unconstitutional. Moore, who was twice ejected in disgrace from his seat on the Alabama Supreme Court, should be a shoo-in.

"We can not afford, the future of this country can not afford to lose the seat", Trump said, referring to his party's razor-thin 52-48 advantage in that chamber of Congress.

"Did you see what happened today?" "I had no encounter with them".

"He will never, ever vote for us", said Trump.

The White House said the rally was a campaign event for Trump.

Numerous Republicans have called on Moore to step aside in the race.

"The president has recorded a robocall for Roy Moore's Senate campaign", White House spokesman Raj Shah told CBS News.

Trump also derided a "rigged system" at the rally, even though he won the 2016 presidential election. US Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a fellow Republican, tried everything to get a defiant Moore to drop out.

Friday's campaign rally was Trump's first since September, when he went to Alabama to campaign for Sen. Luther Strange, who lost the GOP runoff election to Moore.

He'd once claimed that former President Barack Obama had tapped his phones in Trump Tower.

"People are realising that they don't have to vote Republican", Howell said. But if occupying the low ground continues to work for Trump and his allies, will it matter?
