( — Two days after Democrat Doug Jones released a campaign ad saying he could work with Republicans better than Roy Moore, Alabama's Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives gave their endorsement to Moore.

The six Republicans said they would support Moore, his campaign announced Thursday.

Congress members Robert Aderholt of Haleyville, Mo Brooks of Huntsville, Bradley Byrne of Fairhope, Gary Palmer of Birmingham, Martha Roby of Montgomery and Mike Rogers of Saks released a joint statement backing Moore.

Alabama's lone Democrat in Congress, U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell of Birmingham, is supporting Jones.
