Alabama’s two Senate hopefuls are getting some last-minute help from big names in their respective parties.
President Donald Trump recorded a robocall for Republican Roy Moore. Meanwhile former President Barack Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden recorded appeals for Democrat Doug Jones.
“If Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold,” Trump said in the 90-second audio recording released Sunday by the Moore campaign.
“We need Roy voting for us,” Trump said in the recording. “I am stopping illegal immigration and crime. We’re building a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values. But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold. We already know Democrat Doug Jones is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and he will vote with the Washington liberals every single time.”
Neither Obama’s nor Biden’s mentions call mentions Moore by name.
“This one’s serious,” Obama said in his robocall. “You can’t sit it out.”
He continued, “Doug Jones is a fighter for equality, for progress. Doug will be our champion for justice. So get out and vote, Alabama.”
