Jones or Moore? Alabama voters make big decision for Senate election

On Tuesday, Alabama voters are choosing their next U.S. Senator.

Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones are in a tight race to fill the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Election officials expect the turnout to be higher than usual for a special election.

Both candidates made last-minute appeals to voters Monday night.

Steven Bannon campaigned for Moore while Charles Barkley stumped for Jones.

This Senate race has been in the national spotlight after women came forward weeks before the election claiming sexual misconduct abuse against Moore while they were teenagers. Jones has used that as a platform during his campaign.

Jones is spending the day at his campaign headquarters in Birmingham.

The last few weeks Jones has been busy campaigning somewhere in Alabama every day.

Jones said he's feeling confident and good about the campaign he ran. He said he believes the people of Alabama will consider his record over Moore's.

"Judge Moore has been consistently wrong about the Constitution in everything he has done, consistently wrong," Jones said. "In Alabama, we have come so far with too many things, and there's this saying fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Alabama's not going to let that shame happen again."
