Just under a week before Alabama’s special election to replace Attorney General Jeff Session’s seat in the Senate, President Trump called Republican candidate Roy Moore yesterday morning to offer him his endorsement. He then took to Twitter to issue his support, calling Moore’s opponent a “Pelosi/Schumer Puppet.” Trump’s endorsement of Moore has drawn scrutiny from not only Democrats but also Republicans following last month’s Washington Post report that Moore has initiated sexual contact with multiple women under Alabama’s age of consent. According to multiple recent polls, the election, set to be held a week from today, appears to be a toss-up.
