HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones are making their final pushes ahead of Tuesday's special Senate election in Alabama. Jones and Democrats are framing the election as a way for Alabama to reject its history of politicians with baggage that hampers the state. Moore is pushing traditional values and says he reflects them.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Disappearing acts are unheard of for major party candidates but Republican U.S. Senate contender Roy Moore has been out of sight in the days ahead of a critical race. Moore has been wounded by allegations of sexual misconduct with teens. He's denied the allegations. His campaign says Moore has spent the week doing smaller unannounced events and has been on the phone with pastors and others urging supporters to get to the polls. Moore plans to attend a large rally Monday night with Steve Bannon.

PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - Maine's Republican U.S. senator says Alabama politician Roy Moore was unfit to serve in the Senate even before sexual-misconduct allegations against him came to light. Sen. Susan Collins made the comments Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation," calling the Republican National Committee's decision to support Moore against Democrat Doug Jones in a special election on Tuesday "a mistake." Moore has been accused of sexual misconduct with teenage girls when he was in his 30s but denies the allegations.

WASHINGTON (AP) - The orbit of odd political claims stretched from Utah canyons to the looming Alabama Senate race to crazy-as-usual Washington in recent days. That's what The Associated Press found when scrutinizing an assortment of statements from President Donald Trump and others last week. For one, Trump held out the prospect of 6 percent growth, considered a fantasy by mainstream economists.
