Richard Shelby on Roy Moore: 'The Republican Party can do better'

Steve Bannon Joins Alabama Senate Candidate Roy Moore At Campaign Rally

President Donald Trump on Friday urged voters to elect a Republican Senate candidate in Alabama who has been dogged by allegations of sexual misconduct, warning that America "cannot afford" to have a Democrat win the hard-fought campaign instead.

The President has cast Democratic candidate Doug Jones as too liberal for Alabama, and warned that Republicans can't afford to lose a vote in the Senate, where they hold a 52-48 majority.

Trump, who overcame allegations of sexual misconduct to win last year's presidential election, looked past the charges against Moore and formally endorsed the former Alabama judge this week for the seat once held by Jeff Sessions, now the USA attorney general.

Moore has come under fire in the past day for comments about slavery and Vladimir Putin, but the President made it clear tonight that the Republicans "cannot afford" to lose a seat in the Senate. "She started writing things in the yearbook". "Jones will always vote against what we must do for our Country".

Republican Senatorial candidate Roy Moore speaks during a campaign event at Oak Hollow Farm on December 5 in Fairhope, Alabama. Do you know the yearbook?

Moore said in the interview that when he stated he had never met any of the women, he was referring to the ones who have accused him of sexual assault or molestation.

"We can not afford, the future of this country can not afford to lose the seat", Mr Trump said, referring to his party's razor-thin 52-48 advantage in that chamber of Congress.

"Did you see what happened today?"

The White House said the rally was a campaign event for Mr Trump. She continues to maintain that Moore wrote, "To a sweeter, more lovely girl I could not say, "Merry Christmas" 1977".

Bitcoin trading markets seem to have already priced the CBOE's move into their assessment of the cryptocurrency's price. The Chicago Mercantile Exchange also said Friday that it will start offering bitcoin futures trading on December 18.

"The president has recorded a robocall for Roy Moore's Senate campaign", White House spokesman Raj Shah told CBS News.

"Try as Trump and the Republican Party might, there's no way to escape the truth about Roy Moore or Ivanka Trump's own words", American Bridge spokeswoman Allison Teixeira Sulier told the Huffington Post in a statement.

"We can not afford, the future of this country can not afford to lose the seat", Trump said referring to his party's narrow 52-48 advantage in the Senate. We want to know whether it is really possible for a state that calls itself not just conservative, but conservative in the evangelical tradition, to vote for a man like Moore?

Ivey's predecessor, Robert Bentley, appointed then-Attorney General Luther Strange to the seat and said the election would coincide with the 2018 scheduled elections. A deep-red state, Alabama went to Trump previous year by a margin of 24 points.

For those voters who believe the accusations against Moore, there is a third option aside from him or Jones: write in another candidate.

"We're the big piggy bank that everybody likes to rob", said Trump.

"You don't even want to say people", Mr Trump said.

Others were Trump supporters eager to see the president in person.

"People are realising that they don't have to vote Republican", Howell said.
