As Alabama voters go to the polls on Tuesday, former President Barack Obama is calling for these voters to reject the candidacy of Roy Moore. According to CNN, it is a part of an aggressive effort by Democrats to try and counter President Donald Trump's endorsement of the controversial Republican candidate.

"Doug Jones is a fighter for equality, for progress," Obama says. "Doug will be our champion for justice. So get out and vote, Alabama." 

This message is especially meant for black voters whose turnout is critical for Democratic candidate Jones. Multiple women have accused Moore of pursuing relationships with them when they were teenagers and he was in his 30s, and one woman has accused him of sexual assault.

The pre-recorded calls from Obama mark his latest return to the political stage less than a year after leaving the White House. He campaigned for Democratic gubernatorial candidates in Virginia and New Jersey, both of whom won their races last month.

"This one's serious," Obama says in the call. "You can't sit it out."

Trump has, of course, endorsed Moore as his candidate of choice. Whether Trump or Obama's endorsing of candidates will affect voter turnout and the senate race is still an open question. It has been made abundantly clear that Roy Moore is not the right man for the job.  Between sexual assault allegations and his belief that America was last great during slavery, he will not have our best interests at heart. However, without our votes, he may be the man to get the job. 

Make sure you vote, Alabama!
