Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore on Monday released a new television ad aimed at discrediting the recent allegations against him as a “scheme by liberal elites and the Republican establishment” to keep him out of the Senate.
The new spot comes just more than two weeks before Alabamians vote in the special Senate election between Moore and Democrat Doug Jones, whose candidacy has gained new life following allegations that Moore had inappropriate sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl decades ago while he was in his 30s.
Another woman subsequently accused Moore of sexually assaulting her while she was a teenager during the same time period.
The advertisement’s message aligns with one of the campaign’s main attacks on the timing of the accusations.
“Five state campaigns, 40 years of honorable service. Roy Moore has been intensely scrutinized, and not a hint of scandal,” the ad’s narrator says, as pictures of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnellSenate advances public lands bill in late-night vote GOP senator to try to reverse requirement that Pentagon remove Confederate names from bases No, ‘blue states’ do not bail out ‘red states’ MORE (R-Ky.), House Minority Leader Nancy PelosiNancy PelosiTrump on collision course with Congress over bases with Confederate names Black lawmakers unveil bill to remove Confederate statues from Capitol Pelosi: Georgia primary ‘disgrace’ could preview an election debacle in November MORE (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles SchumerChuck SchumerOvernight Health Care: US showing signs of retreat in battle against COVID-19 | Regeneron begins clinical trials of potential coronavirus antibody treatment | CMS warns nursing homes against seizing residents’ stimulus checks Schumer requests briefing with White House coronavirus task force as cases rise Schumer on Trump’s tweet about 75-year-old protester: He ‘should go back to hiding in the bunker’ MORE (D-N.Y.) appear on the screen.
“But four weeks before the election, false allegations — a scheme by liberal elites and the Republican establishment to protect their big government trough.”
The ad also echoes President Trump’s recent message in support of Moore but did not specifically mention the president.
Trump gave the campaign a shot in the arm this weekend with a supportive tweet despite mounting calls from Washington Republicans for him to step aside. He framed the race as a binary between the conservative Moore and the liberal Jones.
The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY. Jones would be a disaster!

“But we know a vote for Roy Moore means conservative judges, tax cuts, and rebuilding the military. Roy Moore — the right choice,” the narrator says to close the ad.
