What’s the story?

The week before the special election for an Alabama Senate seat, President Trump has tweeted out his endorsement of the controversial Republican candidate. GOP candidate Roy Moore, who is accused of molesting multiple teenage girls, is running neck-in-neck with Democratic opponent Doug Jones.

Early Monday morning, President Trump tweeted out this:

Moore responded on Twitter:

Meanwhile, NPR reports that some business leaders in Alabama are concerned about the repercussions to the business climate if Moore wins on Tuesday. Massive corporate boycotts came in response to a GOP-authored transgender bathroom bill in North Carolina, which led to the defeat of the measure. The same could happen in Alabama in response to a Moore win.

What do you think?

Do you think the president’s 11th hour endorsement of Moore will push him over the top? Do you think if Moore wins there will be repercussions for Alabama like there were in North Carolina?
