Sunday night, Democratic U-S Senate Candidate Doug Jones made another campaign stop in Huntsville ahead of Tuesday's special election. 
Jones spoke at a local church for a get out the vote event. During his speech, Jones said elections have consequences and he wants people to practice their right to vote on Tuesday. 

Jones told the crowd the difference between himself and Republican candidate Roy Moore is healthcare. 

Jones says he wants to see rural hospitals in Alabama succeed instead of closing their doors. He also said he wants healthcare to become affordable to everyone.

Jones also mention Alabama State Senator Richard Shelby is not voting for Moore and that should wake voters up.

"We want to move forward and not backwards. We want to make sure that when a CEO wants to come to Huntsville Alabama with a new defense contract that he has someone he and sit at a table with and talk to. That person is not going to be Roy Moore," said Jones.

Jones and his campaign team also made stops in Birmingham, Mobile and Montgomery over the weekend.
