>> I'm gonna take Alabama values to Washington.>> As the nation shifts it's attention south ahead of this weeks Senate Special Election in Alabama, the State Senior Senator Richard Shelby on Sunday, said he did not vote for his party's candidate Roy Moore. In an interview on CNN's State of the Union Shelby said quote, I think the Republican party can do better, citing the accusations that Moore sexually assaulted, or behaved inappropriately with several women when they were teenagers, and he was in his 30s.
Moore, a conservative Christian, and former state judge denies the allegations. Shelby said he already voted, and cast a write in ballot for a different Republican he declined to name. Last week, President Trump formally endorsed Moore, and on Friday voiced his support for the Republican candidate during a rally in Pensacola, Florida.
>> Get out, and vote for Roy Moore. Trump did not directly address the sexual harassment allegations against Moore. But, he mocked the fact that one of Moore's accusers acknowledged that part of an inscription, that she had said Moore had written in her high school yearbook was penned by her.
>> There was a little mistake made, she started writing things in the yearbook.>> Moore faces Democratic candidate Doug Jones in Tuesday's special election.>> And I approve this message.>> A recent Jones campaign ad featured similar comments Senator Shelby made in November.>> But to write in some distinguished person's name, rather than Judge Moore.
