With the hotly contested Alabama Senate election coming down to the wire, Democratic candidate Doug Jones will reportedly use excerpts of Republican Sen. Richard Shelby saying he cannot support GOP candidate Roy Moore as part of his new robocall, according to The Hill.

The robocall is expected to be aired across Alabama on Monday, just one day before the election.

Shelby, who is from Alabama, said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that he did not vote for Moore due to credible allegations of sexual misconduct against him.

CNN reported that the robocall will take advantage of Shelby's critical remarks, particularly his saying, "When it got to the 14-year-old's story, that was enough for me. I said, 'I can't vote for Roy Moore.'"

Jones is already using that excerpt in two 15-second digital ads.

Shelby said he voted for a write-in candidate, insisting that the Republican Party "can do better" than having Roy Moore in the Senate.

President Donald Trump, who backs Moore despite the accusations, has already produced a robocall of his own urging citizens to vote for Moore in the elections so as not to endanger the president's legislative agenda in Congress.
