SWEET HOME ALABAMA … ROY MOORE WINS!!!
Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore has won the Alabama Republican primary for U.S. Senate, defeating an appointed incumbent backed by President Donald Trump and hand picked ally of Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. WAY TO GO ALABAMA. Moore not only defeated Strange, he crushed him 55% to 45%. In the end, the people of Alabama spoke and it was the people of Alabama who knew that Roy Moore was the better candidate to run for US Senate, more so that even President Donald Trump.
Republican challenger Roy Moore defeated Sen. Luther Strange in Alabama’s Senate primary Tuesday night, riding a wave of rural support over the incumbent backed by President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Moore, a former state Supreme Court justice, had 55 percent of the vote to Strange’s 45 percent with 95 percent of precincts reporting. Strange, who was appointed to Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ old seat earlier this year, is the first senator to lose a primary since Indiana Republican Richard Lugar was defeated in 2012.
Moore’s victory comes despite the efforts of top Republicans in Washington, who threw their weight behind Strange. Trump endorsed Strange in August and appeared with him in Alabama last week, while a super PAC aligned with McConnell spent millions of dollars on pro-Strange advertising.
But Strange never led a single public poll against Moore since finishing behind Moore in the August primary and qualifying for the runoff. Moore had been elected statewide twice and built up a committed conservative following during stints on the state Supreme Court, where he defied federal orders on same-sex marriage and the display of a statue of the Ten Commandments and racked up a history of controversial comments on race and religion.
Sweet Home Alabama
This should be a wake up call to both President Donald Trump and especially Sen. Mitch McConnell. This election is not a referendum on President Trump as he is still admired and adored in Alabama with high approval ratings. However, this is a bitter defeat and referendum on McConnell. The GOP has been a failure and should take this as a sign to either resign his position or leave the U.S. Senate altogether.
Get ready for the wave America. Fueled by the LEFT’s continual denial of the 2016 presidential election, the disrespectful National Anthem situation and the Republican establishment’s failures, the Democrats are not going to take anything back in 2018, the country is not moving left, looks for establishment GOP, gutless SOB’s to be primary challenged and lose and for them to resign from office before they are embarrassed.
A note to President Donald Trump … you took part in a wave election in 2016, make sure you are not on the wrong side again for the 2018 wave election. You stated you were going to drain the swamp, DO IT!
To the great state of Alabama, THANK YOU!!! You just sent a political shot across the bow of the GOP establishment politicians. Look for many of these cowards to see the writing on the wall and finally leave Washington, DC. If they don’t voluntarily, we will vote them out once and for all.
