Roy Moore, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Alabama, released a TV ad Monday that targets allegations against him, calling them a "scheme by liberal elites and the Republican establishment", according to The Hill.

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump return to the White House Sunday after a spending five days in Florida. The Alabama Republican faces Democratic opponent Doug Jones on December 12.

Top Republicans in Congress, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, have called for Moore to leave the race.

The race between Moore and Jones will be decided December 12. "I think I am very strong on the issues that the people of Alabama care for".

Lee Busby, a 60-year-old retired Marine colonel who was vice chief of staff to John Kelly, said he plans to launch a write-in bid for the seat.
