Potential swing voters plan to vote Republican in U.S. Senate race
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. —
The Alabama Secretary of State's office is predicting low voter turnout for next Tuesday's United States Senate race with only 20% of voters going to the polls.
Political experts believe suburban moms who usually vote Republican could swing their vote.
ABC 33/40 News spoke with women who fit into the swing vote mold. None of the women plan to vote Democrat next Tuesday.
Most of the moms plan to vote Republican, with one woman in the group unsure if she will vote at all this election.
"Right now I'm feeling discouraged enough just to not vote which is unusual for me," said Sonya Dunham of Shelby County. "It's an overriding sadness and discouragement about all the stories that have been coming out that make it hard to focus on the political issues that may be at stake."
At a rally Monday in Birmingham, Democratic candidate Doug Jones said he believes the allegations against Republican candidate Roy Moore are true and feels others should as well.
Roy Moore is set to campaign in Fairhope Monday night with ex-White House official Steve Bannon. The hype behind the rally has sparked the need for additional law enforcement. This is Bannon's second appearance in Fairhope campaigning with Moore.
