Doug Jones is'painting himself as a moderate, Moore went on'when in fact he's a very liberal Democrat

Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore's campaign strategist on Sunday said the state's upcoming special election is a referendum on President Donald Trump.

Trump urged Alabamians to vote for Moore during a Friday-night rally in neighboring Florida.

After claiming that Washington elites have been getting rich off the country and wondering aloud if there was a way he could use his power to prevent their investments from increasing in value, Trump - who has had abysmal approval ratings for most of his presidency - went after the Americans opposed to his administration who call themselves "the resistance".

Gadsden, the mall where Moore reportedly pursued teenaged girls, is still there, crowded ahead of the Christmas holiday. But Trump, who is facing his own allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment from more than a dozen women, soon made clear that he doubts Moore's accusers and that he'd rather have a Republican in the Senate than a Democrat.

Earlier in the day, Ms Nelson acknowledged that she added a notation under a high school yearbook inscription she says Mr Moore wrote in 1977.

"The state of Alabama deserves better", Shelby said.

Democratic Senate hopeful Doug Jones's latest campaign strategy to target black voters in Alabama has come under fire for racism as the hotly contested race reaches a boiling point. "Did you see that? Jones will always vote against what we must do for our Country". After Trump made it official on Monday (Tuesday NZT) that he supports Moore, the Republican National Committee turned back on the spigot of cash to help Moore win.

Roy Moore is facing allegations of misconduct from numerous women.

"I understand where the president is coming from; we would've liked to retain that seat in the US Senate", Shelby said.

"We need somebody in that Senate seat who will vote for our Make America Great Again agenda, which involves tough on crime, strong on borders, strong on immigration", Mr Trump continued. "It's that he is going to Pensacola", White House spokesman Raj Shah told reporters on board Air Force One as Mr Trump flew to Florida. He explicitly went down south to campaign for Roy Moore.
