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.

Moore has faced allegations of sexual misconduct involving teenage girls decades ago in the Dec. 12 special election against Jones.
