Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones will be in Huntsville Wednesday as part of a three-city 'Day of Action.'
Jones, who is in a close battle with Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore leading up to the December 12 special election, will hold events in Birmingham, Huntsville and Cullman for his final 'Women's Wednesdays' campaign tour. The goal of the campaign's program is to help bolster female support.
The candidate starts his day in Birmingham at 11 a.m. Jones will be in Huntsville at 3:30 p.m. at 303 Williams Avenue where one of his campaign's phone banks are located. He will then hold a rally with equal pay advocate Lilly Ledbetter and former Alabama First Lady Marsha Folsom in Cullman at 6 p.m at 281 County Road 717.
The Democrat has trailed Moore in a majority of polls, but he has also led in a couple within the past week. Moore has been able to maintain an overall slight lead despite many accusations of inappropriate conduct with teens while he was in his early 30s.
Jones is trying to become the first Alabama Democrat elected to the US Senate in more than 20 years.
