In Alabama, a number of African-American lawmakers are planning to campaign for Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones, who is running against Republican candidate Roy Moore in the contentious December 12 election. Among those who are planning to campaign with Jones this weekend are New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, Alabama Congressmember Terri Sewell, Georgia Congressmember John Lewis and former Massachusetts Democratic Governor Deval Patrick. Jones is in a close race against Roy Moore, who has been accused by at least nine women of sexually harassing or assaulting them when they were teenagers. Moore has been repeatedly endorsed by President Trump. Trump is holding a rally today in Pensacola, just four days before the special election. Pensacola is just 20 miles from the Alabama border, and it’s in the same media market as Mobile, Alabama.
