In recent weeks, Jones has been
airing ads that highlight the Moore scandal. In a very red state, he needs to convince Republicans who are disgusted with the allegations to either switch and vote Democratic or stay home on Election Day.
On Tuesday, Jones told the Birmingham crowd of his support for the Second Amendment and threw in a jab at Moore. He said that when they see him with a gun, “I’ll be climbing in and out of a deer blind ... not prancing around on a stage in a cowboy suit” ― a reference to an earlier stunt at a rally when Moore, sporting a cowboy hat and a leather vest,
pulled out a gun onstage.
Additionally, Jones talked about the best-known part of his biography, when he was a U.S. attorney and prosecuted two Ku Klux Klan members who were responsible for a 1963 bombing that killed four young black girls and injured 20 others at the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham.
“I understood that as an Alabaman and as an American, it would likely be the most important task that I would ever undertake,” he said.
