Some Alabama Republicans are ignoring President Donald Trump’s call to back their own party’s candidate for the Senate, Roy Moore, and are instead voting for Democrat Doug Jones. But many others are still backing Moore despite accusations he sexually assaulted several underage girls. The race is on a knife edge.
