Doug Jones finds himself in a position an Alabama Democrat has not been in for a generation. He has a reasonable chance of being elected to the U.S. Senate. Jones faces Republican Roy Moore December 12th in a race to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Doug Jones says the mounting sexual misconduct claims against his GOP opponent Roy Moore are credible. But Jones has been relatively restrained about attacking Moore. Jones campaign officials say they’re focusing their message on their candidate. But sometimes, the elephant in the room is too easy a target.
The Alabama Republican Party is holding firm in its support for U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore. According to Chairman Terry Lathan, “The ALGOP Steering Committee supports Judge Roy Moore as our nominee and trusts the voters as they make the ultimate decision in this crucial race.”
Officials with Roy Moore’s campaign late Wednesday afternoon continued to deny the sexual assault claims of his latest accuser, Beverly Nelson Young. Campaign Chairman Bill Armistead said Moore doesn’t recall ever signing Nelson Young’s high school yearbook.
The chorus of calls is growing for Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore to step aside following additional allegations of sexual misconduct years ago. Near his home base in Etowah County, the former Alabama chief Supreme Court justice still has support among some but questions from others.
With links between head impacts and neurological problems becoming clearer, an alternative to youth tackle football is surging. Flag football is more and more popular, even as participation in other sports declines, and even in a place known for tackle: Hoover, Alabama.
A fifth woman came forward Monday with powerful sexual allegations against Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore. Beverly Young Nelson said Moore sexually assaulted her when she was a 16-year-old waitress at a restaurant Moore often frequented. Moore continued to deny the allegations.
