Alabama Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore is now leading in the polls.
According to a WT&S Consulting survey, 46 percent of likely voters will choose Moore as their next senator with nearly 41 percent opting for Democrat challenger Doug Jones.
Another poll from Raycom News Network shows Moore at 47 percent, and Jones at 45 percent.
The numbers come as the special election to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions former seat is fast approaching.
Meanwhile, Jones is under fire after new reports show he once defended a man with ties to Ku Kux Klan.
1980’s court documents show Jones once represented Tom Posey, who is a key figure in the infamous Iran-Contra scandal.
At the time, Posey was labeled an extremist and was put on trial for the illegal arms sale to Nicaraguan Rebels.
Jones successfully defended Posey, who founded the Civilian Military Assistance which started as a KKK splinter group.
The Doug Jones campaign did not deny the revelations, and defended Jones role as Posey’s defense counsel.
