In Alabama, voters are heading to the polls today in a special election for a U.S. Senate seat that could determine the fate of President Trump’s legislative agenda—as well as the future makeup of the Supreme Court. The election pits Democrat Doug Jones against Roy Moore, who’s been accused by at least nine women of sexually harassing or assaulting them when they were teenagers—one as young as 14. On Monday, Moore made a final pitch in a campaign rally that featured Texas tea party Republican Congressmember Louie Gohmert, former Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke and Steve Bannon, President Trump’s former chief strategist and editor of the far-right website Breitbart. Roy Moore was introduced by his wife, Kayla Moore, who pushed back against media reports about her husband’s racist, sexist and anti-Semitic views.
Kayla Moore: “Fake news would tell you we that don’t care for Jews. I tell you all this because I’ve seen it also. I just want to set the record straight while they’re here. One of our attorneys is a Jew.”
