The Roy Moore campaign on Sunday began sending out robocalls featuring the voice of President Trump touting Moore's record on issues like immigration, the justice system, military build-up, gun rights, and abortion. If "Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones," Trump warns, "all of our progress will be stopped full."

The Jones campaign is also marshaling its allies for the final 48 hours before the special Senate election. Jones has promoted endorsements from celebrities including Keegan-Michael Key and Connie Britton, and Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and former Gov. Deval Patrick (D-Mass.) have traveled to Alabama to help Jones court the black voters he needs to win.

Final polls show a close race, though Moore has regained some of his early lead as most GOP voters remain loyal despite the sexual misconduct allegations leveled against him by multiple women.
