WASHINGTON (AP) - President Donald Trump has all but endorsed embattled Alabama Republican Senate nominee Roy Moore, who faces sexual assault allegations. Trump says he'll announce next week whether he'll campaign for Moore, who faces Democrat Doug Jones in a Dec. 12 special election. Trump won the president election despite facing more than a dozen accusations of sexual misconduct himself.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Republican Roy Moore's campaign is lashing out again at the news media and accusations of sexual misconduct, but refusing to answer reporters' questions. In a Tuesday news conference, campaign strategist Dean Young and two other longtime associates of the Alabama GOP Senate nominee insisted allegations against Moore are false.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Department of Public Health's Immunization Division is investigating a case of meningococcal disease, the leading cause of bacterial meningitis in children between the ages of 2 and 18 in the United States. In a news release Tuesday, the department said the case was found at Scottsboro Junior High School in Jackson County. No other cases have been identified.

TUSKEGEE, Ala. (AP) - An Alabama sheriff says he believes an Atlanta-based rapper and a music promoter were slain outside of the county where their bodies were found.

Macon County Sheriff Andre Brunson said at a news conference that he believes both bodies were placed in Macon County after the two men were killed elsewhere.
