MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

In six days voters will head to the polls to decide the Alabama U.S. Senate race. Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones are on the campaign trail, doing what they can to drum up last minute support ahead of Election Day.

Jones campaigning Wednesday night in Cullman County, continues to ask Alabama voters to take the sexual misconduct allegations against Moore seriously when they step into the voting booth Tuesday. 

"It is our turn to be the leading voice and step forward because at the end of the day we have to ask ourselves we've got to make sure when we look at our daughters and granddaughters in the eye we know we are going to have an Alabama that will stand for them - that will believe them regardless of when they stand up and speak out," said Jones. 

Moore still coming off a big night in Fairhope.  

"This has been a long and enduring campaign. Very been. Been very intense," said Moore. 

Moore spoke at Oak Hollow Farms Tuesday night. He was joined by former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon. Both talked up President Trump's agenda and how Moore is the best candidate to help move it forward.  

"And, this Senate Race is the only Senate Race going. It's the first Senate Race since Donald Trump was elected and it means something special. It means that we're going to see if the People of Alabama will support the President and support his agenda in Washington by electing somebody that's not part of the establishment there," said Moore. 

Meanwhile, as Moore refuses to debate Jones -- their war of words continues not only in campaign ads, but on social media. Both taking to twitter to call out the other.  

The latest Raycom/Strategy Research poll shows Moore widening his lead over Jones. With Moore polling at 50%, Jones 43%, undecided voters at 4% and write-ins at 3%. 

As the enter the final stretch of the race, the message of both candidates hasn't changed. 

"See, when I think, I think they're afraid I'm going to take Alabama values to Washington. (applause) and, I want to tell you, I can't wait," said Moore in Fairhope. 

"This is a season of opportunity. I said this yesterday... this is a season of opportunity. The question is going to be whether Alabama will grab hold of that opportunity or whether we will sit on the sidelines and let the world go around us," said Jones. "We need to make sure the face of Alabama is not going to be someone like Roy Moore... Who I believe and everyone in this room believes will be a disaster for business in Alabama... An absolute disaster."
