Alabama's closely watched Senate race headed for the finish line Tuesday, as voters headed to the polls to decide whether Republican Roy Moore or Democrat Doug Jones would fill the unexpired term of U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. National media descended on the state, in a reflection of the extraordinary attention the race has received following sexual allegations against Moore which date back 40 years. Moore has strongly denied any wrongdoing, and said he did not know the women. Jones said he believed the accusers, one of whom changed her story on Friday. Late polls were inconclusive; an Emerson College survey gave Moore a lead of 9 points, while a Fox News poll showed Jones with a 10-point advantage. The Real Clear Politics Average of polls showed Moore leading by 2.2 points. By any measure, it is the most competitive general election campaign for a U.S. Senate seat in Alabama since Sessions first won the seat in 1996.
