"I propose a public debate, mano a mano, no tricks, no moderators, no questions from the press", Moore said in a statement. Because Bentley was later forced out of office due to a sex scandal, and he introduces Bentley as being recommended by a hated figure among Trump loyalists: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The GOP primary may have left supporters of both candidates unwilling at this time to support their party rival.

"One-quarter of Moore's primary voters said they'd rather vote for the Democrat than odd, while 31 percent of Strange's voters said they'd pick the Democrat over their primary rival". "That said, we are committed to the voters and will accommodate Mr. Moore's ridiculous demands if that is the only way to get him to come out of hiding", odd campaign spokesman Cameron Foster wrote in an open letter sent to the Moore campaign.

If Jones were to win, Alabama could send their first Democrat to the US Senate in over 20 years.

Short's comments was a far cry from those of White House press secretary Sarah Sanders when we asked her the same question last month - shortly after Moore led unusual by 39 to 33 percent in the initial primary.

The two Republicans are competing in the September 26 GOP runoff.

Results were reported for the December general election based on interviews of 416 likely voters, also "using an Interactive Voice Response (IVR) system of landlines only".

That's within the 4.8 percent margin of error.
