ALABAMA SENATE RACE: TOO CLOSE TO CALL/WILL ROY MOORE WIN?
ARE VOTERS FAVORING CANDIDATE WHO WANTS TIGHTER IMMIGRATION CONTROL?
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — A U.S. Senate campaign that was thrust into the national spotlight by allegations of sexual misconduct by one of the candidates is near the finish line.
Here is a look the race between Republican nominee Roy Moore, who spent the final month of the campaign denying allegations of long-ago misconduct involving teenage girls, and Doug Jones, who is seeking to break the GOP’s grip on Alabama and pick up a seat in the Senate for Democrats:
The race is too close to call.
Moore easily defeated Republican Senate appointee Luther Strange in a September runoff election after leading the 10-person field in the primary, and he was on track to win until allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced. Now the race is a tossup.
Polls show Moore and Jones have seesawed for the lead in the final weeks of the campaign, with some showing Moore ahead and others showing Jones in the lead. The race will be decided by which candidate does a better job getting his supporters to actually vote.–PBS
