Much has been made this week of Roy Moore’s supporters, including President Donald Trump, as we near Tuesday’s U.S. Senate race pitting Moore, a Republican, against Democratic candidate Doug Jones.

However, Alabama voters should keep in mind the number of prominent Republicans who have spoken out forcefully against Moore. Many of the voices below are from U.S. senators; it’s nearly without precedent for lawmakers in these positions to speak ill of a fellow party member. We suggest voters consider these words when going to the polls.
