Charles Barkley is stepping up for Roy Moore’s opponent for the open U.S. Senate seat, this after blasting Moore for his close ties to Steve Bannon.

Barkley appeared with Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones Monday evening in Birmingham on the eve of the election. The NBA Hall of Famer, and Alabama native, will be at a Jones rally along with “Orange Is the New Black” star Uzo Aduba. Charles made his feelings about Moore clear last month when he got heated about the support he gets from Bannon, an alleged white separatist, in Barkley’s opinion.

What is interesting is Barkley will not vote in Tuesday’s special election as he no longer lives in Alabama.  Yet he is taking time to appear with Moore’s opponent. Sir Charles admitted not knowing a lot about Jones, but clearly thinks he’s gotta be better than Moore.
