President Donald Trump gave a boost Tuesday to embattled Republican candidate Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race, warning against a Democratic victory and emphasizing that the former judge “totally denies” allegations made against him.
“We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat,” Trump said about Moore’s opponent, former federal prosecutor Doug Jones, who has led in some recent polls in the state. “I’ve looked at his record. It’s terrible on crime. It’s terrible on the border. It’s terrible on military.”
