In their final rallies, Moore pulled in ex-White House adviser Steve Bannon, while former NBA star Charles Barkley came out in support of Jones.

Bannon said, "They tried to destroy Donald Trump, and they're trying to destroy Roy Moore. There's no bottom to how low they'll go," in reference to allegations that Moore acted sexually inappropriate with several teenage girls when he was in his 30s.
