President Trump will hold a campaign-style rally in Pensacola, Fla., less than 30 miles from the Alabama border, next week.
The rally is scheduled for next Friday — days before Alabama’s special election for U.S. Senate, according to CNN.
The Republican in the Senate race, Roy Moore, is facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
The Washington Post reported the initial accusations against Moore earlier this month. In that report, four women accused Moore of pursuing sexual and romantic relations with them when they were between the ages of 14 and 18, while he was in his 30s. Other women have come forward with additional allegations since then.
Trump addressed the allegations against Moore last week, offering support but not an official endorsement.
"He denies it. Look, he denies it," Trump said of Moore. "If you look at all the things that have happened over the last 48 hours. He totally denies it. He says it didn't happen. And look, you have to look at him also."
Trump also admitted he did not want the seat to be taken by Moore's Democratic challenger Doug Jones.
“We don’t need a liberal person in there, a Democrat — Jones,” Trump said. “I’ve looked at his records, it’s terrible on crime, it’s terrible on the border, it’s terrible on the military. I can tell you for a fact, we do not need someone who is going to be bad on crime, bad on borders, and bad with the military, bad for the Second Amendment.”
Although last week Trump left the door open that he might campaign for Moore, the White House said Monday that Trump does not plan to campaign on behalf of Moore before the election.
The special election is set for Dec. 12 and will decide who fills the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
