It has come to this for Alabama voters.
You can go to the polls on Tuesday, Dec. 12 and cast your ballot and make a difference by being an informed voter.
There’s no question that Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones faces un an uphill battle in defeating Republican Roy Moore to succeed now U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions as Alabama’s junior senator.
Even though he is a Republican, senior Alabama Sen. Richard Shelby said there was no way he would vote for Roy Moore after allegations that Moore sexually assaulted a 14-year-old Gadsden girl when he was 32 and an assistant district attorney.
Moore has denied that allegation and several others.
Just this week, President Donald Trump endorsed Moore for the seat. Not surprising from Trump, who also has been accused of sexual improprieties and admitted so in the Access Hollywood tape.
Trump’s reasoning is that Moore denies the allegations and he needs a Republican (Moore) and not a liberal Democrat like Jones in office where the Senate currently has a 52-48 majority.
Already twice removed from his elected office of Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court for violating his oath of office, Moore doesn’t deserve to hold another elected position.
Doug Jones brings much more to the table than the disgraced Moore. For that reason, Jones deserves to be out next U.S. Senator.
