GOP Swamp Worried Moore Might Win

Sep 25, 2017

The Republican swamp is “deeply worried” that incumbent Senator Luther Strange will not pull out a win for the nomination on Tuesday. Judge Roy Moore has a history of not bending the knee. He refused to remove the Ten Commandments from the state courthouse. He told the clerk of courts to not issue marriage licenses to same sex couples. He’s also called for Mitch McConnell to be ousted from Republican leadership. If Moore wins on Tuesday, other principled conservatives might challenge incumbent Republicans in other states. Roy Moore’s well funded opponents are running “non-stop TV ads, a meticulously-crafted get-out-the-vote effort, and detailed, opportunity-research-filled debate prep sessions for Strange.” Moore’s campaign has cast Luther Strange as “a pawn of the party establishment and especially McConnell.” Moore’s campaign has received the support of Sarah Palin, Steve Bannon, Sean Hannity, and “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson. Bannon calls the race a “civil war that will put the establishment and movement wings of the party.”
