Obama and Biden join Trump in recording calls for Ala. Senate hopefuls
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — National political leaders, a Hollywood actress and a retired basketball star made last-ditch efforts Monday to woo voters in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race, as the candidates gave their final arguments in a pivotal special election that has attracted more than $41 million in spending.
Former president Barack Obama and former vice president Joe Biden recorded robo-calls for Democrat Doug Jones, while President Trump recorded an appeal for Republican Roy Moore.
“If Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold,” Trump said in his recorded message.
For his last event of the campaign, Moore brought in a raft of out-of-state conservative activists, including former White House adviser Stephen K. Bannon, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.), and former Milwaukee County sheriff David Clarke.
“They tried to destroy Donald Trump, and they’re trying to destroy Roy Moore,” Bannon said. “There’s no bottom for how low they’ll go.”
