Judge Roy Moore speaks as he participates inside the Mid-Alabama Republican Club’s Veterans Day Program in Vestavia Hills, Alabama, November 11, 2017.
President Donald Trump made his most direct appeal to voters to date for the candidacy of embattled Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, telling Alabama voters to cast their ballots for the former judge in addition to linking his agenda to the GOP’s ability to hold that will seat.
In a robocall advertisement released by the Moore campaign, Trump issued a passionate call for voters to “get out in addition to vote for Roy Moore. His vote will be our Republican Senate in addition to its needed.”
In recent days, Trump has slowly embraced the Alabama Republican inside the wake of a blizzard of allegations of sexual improprieties.
With polls showing a tight race between Moore in addition to Democratic challenger Doug Jones, the president also suggested Moore’s candidacy was necessary to pass Trump’s agenda inside the Senate, where Republicans hold a razor-thin majority.
“I need Alabama to go vote for Roy Moore. that will will be so important. We’re already creating America great again,” Trump’s voice stated on the advertisement, as he attacked Moore’s challenger as antithetical to GOP interests.
“I’m going to make America safer in addition to stronger in addition to better than ever before however we need that will seat. We need Roy voting for us,” Trump said, as he disparaged Jones as “a puppet of [House Minority Leader] Nancy Pelosi in addition to [Senate Minority Leader] Chuck Schumer. in addition to he will vote with Washington liberals every single time.”
