Sweet Home Alabama … Justice Roy Moore & Sen. Luther Strange Advance to GOP Runoff in Alabama Special Election … Doug Jones wins Alabama Senate Democrat Primary
GREAT JOB BAMA!!!
Drain the Swamp … As reported at The Politico, former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore and Sen. Luther Strange will advance to a Republican primary runoff in Alabama’s special Senate race in September. Moore finished first with 41% of the vote and Strange, who was backed by Trump and McConnell, only received 32%. Since no candidate received the necessary 50percent, Moore and Strange will move onto a Sept. 26 runoff before the December general election. It would appear that Moore has a lead over Strange heading into the special election. To the people of Alabama, it is time to drain the swamp and send a message to Mitch McConnell, establishment Republicans and to President Trump. We are going to hold him accountable to draining the swamp, and that means ridding the US Senate of McConnell lackeys. Send a message to President Trump as well, when the electorate says drain the swamp, we mean drain the swamp. Trump needs a bit of a reminder who elected him president, and it wasn’t the McConnell, establishment GOP types. Cuz, a southern man don’t need establishment RINO’s around any how!!!
SWEET HOME ALABAMA!!!
In other news, Democrat Doug Jones wins Alabama Senate primary and doesn’t have a snowballs chance in hell of winning the general election. Mr. Jones can receive all the Democrat endorsements he wants, like from former VP Biden. Jones can make claims like, “As your United States Senator, I am going to continue to fight for everybody in this state. I’m going to be an independent voice … I’m going to be beholden only to the people of the state of Alabama. Don’t be fooled, no freshman Democrat is going to have any say in a party run by liberal Chucky Schumer of New York. Independent? Who is he kidding. Jones would be beholden to Schumer and the far left liberal agenda.
Former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore and Sen. Luther Strange advanced to a Republican primary runoff in Alabama’s special Senate race, which will put President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s political clout on the line in September.
Moore had 40 percent of the vote and Strange — who was backed by Trump and McConnell — had 32 percent after The Associated Press called the race. Rep. Mo Brooks trailed at 20 percent. Alabama election laws call for the top two primary finishers to compete in a runoff if no candidate gets a majority.
Despite the weighty endorsements, Strange has been locked in fierce competition with the other Republican hopefuls this summer. He leaned hard into Trump’s endorsement to try to make a show of strength in the first round and close in on Moore.
“[President Trump] knows that I am the person in this race that’s going to make this country great again,” Strange told cheering supporters Tuesday night.
But Strange, who was appointed to the seat earlier this year when Attorney General Jeff Sessions left the Senate to join Trump’s Cabinet, still ran behind Moore — and well behind the majority marker — in the first round.
“This is a great victory,” Moore told attendees at his election night party. “The attempt by the silk stocking Washington elitists to control the vote of the people of Alabama has failed.”
