The stakes are high for Trump - who has repeatedly endorsed Moore, campaigned in Florida just outside Alabama on Friday night and doesn't want to see the GOP's 52-48 majority trimmed at all.
I'll openly acknowledge personal hostility against Moore based on his lengthy history of extremely homophobic behavior, so overwhelming that his defiance of the Supreme Court on gay marriage was what got him booted out of the judiciary in Alabama.
Moore's Christian nationalist positions are something that resonate with numerous state's white evangelical voters, and he hasn't backed off his controversial positions against same-sex marriage and transgender rights.
Jones' camp is counting on big African-American turnout in Jefferson County, which accounted for about 15 percent of the 2 million votes cast statewide in the 2016 election.
The election in the reliably Republican state is a referendum on Moore. The question is whether Moore can turn out his rural supporters and hold onto enough suburban moderates to take full advantage of the state's heavy GOP tilt.
