WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is urging Alabama voters to support Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, saying on Twitter the ‘‘LAST thing’’ his agenda needs is a ‘‘Liberal Democrat’’ in the Senate. He tweets, ‘‘VOTE ROY MOORE!’’
Trump was tweeting in advance of a Friday night rally in Pensacola, Florida, near the Alabama border. The White House has said the Florida rally is a campaign event for Trump.
LAST thing the Make America Great Again Agenda needs is a Liberal Democrat in Senate where we have so little margin for victory already. The Pelosi/Schumer Puppet Jones would vote against us 100% of the time. He’s bad on Crime, Life, Border, Vets, Guns & Military. VOTE ROY MOORE!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 8, 2017
Moore has faced allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls decades ago in the Dec. 12 special election against Jones.
