Roy Moore: 'I Never Molested Anyone'

President Donald Trump on Friday urged voters to elect a Republican Senate candidate in Alabama who has been dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct, warning that America "cannot afford" to have a Democrat win the hard-fought campaign instead.

While Trump did not travel to Alabama to campaign for Moore ahead of Tuesday's election, Pensacola is near the Alabama border and feeds television markets in the state.

Mr Trump said Mr Moore's opponent, Doug Jones, is a "liberal Democrat" who would be "completely controlled" by Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi in the House and Chuck Schumer in the Senate. Senate Republicans want nothing to do with Moore after The Washington Post published allegations that Moore inappropriately touched a 14-year-old when he was 32, and five other teenagers who say he made advances on them. Last week we learned he started dating his wife, Kayla, before she was done divorcing her first husband.

Jones volunteer Dana Ellis, a 64-year-old nurse, navigated icy sidewalks in Birmingham's Kingston neighborhood, which is overwhelmingly African-American, to ensure likely Jones supporters vote on Tuesday.

At a rally Friday in Pensacola, Florida, which is near the Alabama border, the president pointed to someone in the audience and said: "This guy is screaming, 'We want Roy Moore.' He is right". You know, the yearbook? "There was a little mistake made", Trump said, shifting to singsong. She also said she's troubled that Moore has been removed from the Alabama Supreme Court twice for failure to "follow lawful judicial orders".

Moore, who is 70, is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct, including accusations that he molested two teenage girls and pursued romantic relationships with several others while in his 30s.

"We can not afford - this country, the future of this country, can not afford to lose a seat in the very, very close United States Senate".

"Did you see that?" he asked.

"I did not know them", Moore said of the women who have accused him.

But they also have just one win against a team that now has a winning record (a 28-23 victory against the Panthers in Week 6). If that does not happen, and the Eagles score, the game is tied at 10-10 and Philadelphia probably goes on to win the game.

Earlier, the Union finance ministry had seen downward risks to its original growth projection of 6.75 per cent to 7.5 per cent. "However, after the final indirect tax collection data is released, it might lead to upward revision in the growth numbers".

The White House maintains that the president remains concerned about the allegations of sexual misconduct leveled against Moore but say that Moore's denials should also be taken under consideration.

Trump also derided a "rigged system" at the rally, even though he won the 2016 presidential election.

Moore might still lose what should be an easily winnable race for a Republican. Moore, by contrast, held no public events, a familiar strategy as he bets big that the state's strong Republican leanings will carry him to the Senate, despite his shortcomings.

Ivey's predecessor, Robert Bentley, appointed then-Attorney General Luther Strange to the seat and said the election would coincide with the 2018 scheduled elections.

"We love Trump, because he doesn't back down from anybody", said Holt, who said a tax cut is his top priority.

Alabamians can expect to hear President Trump's voice on the phone next week.

"People are realising that they don't have to vote Republican", Howell said.

"Do you know what they're really resisting?", he continued, "They are resisting the will of the American people".
