Roy Moore Announces He’s Running for Senate… Again

Roy Moore Announces He’s Running for Senate… Again

Calls 2018 loss a ‘fraud’

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bhg4U3s6X1I

Roy Moore, who ran for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by former Attorney General Jeff Sessions in 2017 is running for Senate… again.

Watch:

The Senate Leadership Fund released the following statement:

The Senate Leadership Fund released the following statement after failed 2017 Senate nominee Roy Moore announced he would mount another campaign in Alabama:

“We believe most Alabama Republicans realize that nominating Roy Moore would be gift wrapping this Senate seat for Chuck Schumer. It remains to be seen whether Moore can escape his baggage without his candidacy collapsing under its own weight, regardless of what groups on the outside do.” -SLF Communications Director Jack Pandol

Meanwhile, over at the AP, the Democrat response:

Democratic Sen. Doug Jones says Roy Moore’s decision to run for the seat again in 2020 “is not good for the state of Alabama.”

Jones told The Associated Press after Moore’s announcement Thursday that the Republican primary in Alabama “just got more divisive and extreme.”

He says the GOP primary will boil down to “either an extremist like Moore or it’ll be an extremist who will be hand-picked by Mitch McConnell,” the Senate majority leader who’s opposed Moore in the past.

Comments

Call it a day, Roy. Your time has come and gone and I don’t really believe that your motivation is to serve the people of Alabama so much as to serve Roy Moore.

The MSM/DNC axis ran the same campaign against Moore that they ran against President Trump, and Supreme Court Justices Kavanaugh and Thomas. The distinguishing feature of those campaigns was a complete lack of credible evidence obscured by the deranged screaming by the media talking heads.

That does not mean that Moore would be a good Senator or even run a good campaign. Moore strikes me as a showboat and a lightweight, though certainly not in the same class as John McCain, John Kasich or Mitt Romneycare. But I think it is risky to let the MSM/DNC axis pick your candidates for you, particularly on evidence as transparently false as the evidence presented against Moore. Those who say “Roy Moore is NOT the hill to fight and die on” do not seem to realize that we are rapidly running out of hills to fight on.

If you want to vote against Moore because you think he would be a lousy Senator or run a poor campaign – fine. But if the only reason someone would oppose him is the belief that he is “damaged goods”, then be prepared for more baseless accusations against other Republicans. Stand up and fight false accusations, or be prepared to get pounded by them every single time.

    I guess the Alabama voters were uncomfortable with his spending time with underage girls even though there’s really no hint of inappropriate physical activity. My impression is that they found what he did (and is pretty much admitted) creepy, not that they though he did worse.

    I think it was a big overreaction, but is it the sort of thing people will vote differently on next time?

    Will Trump have coat-tails to pull him in? 2020 is a good opportunity for any Republican running for that seat, because those coat-tails in Alabama will be considerable.

    He is damaged goods. Its Alabama for heaven’s sake… isn’t there a decent republican available to run for that seat?

go Tommy Tuberville!

    franker in reply to Tom Servo. | June 20, 2019 at 9:40 pm

    Tuberville was probably the worst coach in the University of Cincinnati history (and they were a pretty good program before he came in – went to Bowl Games quite a few years and were 3rd in the nation before losing to Tebow in the Orange Bowl).

    Around these parts he is thought of as being a former successful coach who was looking for a big paycheck without having to do a lot of work.

    The UC program has improved dramatically since he left.

    He reminds me a lot of Jeff Sessions.

    LOL

      healthguyfsu in reply to franker. | June 20, 2019 at 10:19 pm

      Cincy is a lousy football program anyways. I could see someone like Tubberville struggling there after having the resources available at Auburn in the years prior.

      I don’t know how that reflects at all on his ability to serve as a Senator in a state where he has a good network and plans to do a completely different and well-funded job.

      I would judge him on different merits than either coaching job, honestly.

        franker in reply to healthguyfsu. | June 20, 2019 at 10:31 pm

        The fact remains that the program had success before he came and sucked after he did nothing for a couple of years.

        He is Jeff Sessions in an Athletic Sense, IMO.

        Now, if you think he is really something that is really great – I support all Republican Candidates but I just think the guy is a loser.

        LOL and IMO

          healthguyfsu in reply to franker. | June 21, 2019 at 7:08 am

          Fair.

          But I do seem to remember Cincy being above average when the Big East still existed; they were never really great at football. Tubberville took over about a year or so before the dissolution of the Big East. After that, Cincy has been relegated to a basketball school where they’ve had much more success.

          Firewatch in reply to franker. | June 21, 2019 at 12:32 pm

          Texas Tech had a decent program until he moved in.

As we progress to clear the environmental waste from Water Closet, another warlock survivor of trial by disinformation… a partisan press. Good luck.

    Obama et al with Clinton’s namesake “Water Closet” that was exposed by Deep Plunger.

He got railroaded by the Republicans
He may have liked the ladies young but he did less than Biden and if Trump stops dissing him and just says nothing he may win and be an asset

    artichoke in reply to gonzotx. | June 21, 2019 at 2:29 am

    That’s the best Trump will do. Trump’s already been beaten up over the Access Hollywood tape (look how much fuss that caused, over his saying he COULD do something not that he did), now there have one or two more bimbo eruptions come to light. He really can’t be associated with Moore’s type of issues. He’ll have to separate himself from it, to protect the most important office.

He barely lost. He was defamed, lied about… FAKE yearbook slur, allegations that vanished into vapor as soon as he was beaten. GOPe went out of their way to torpedo his campaign. ( Mitch! ) Then there is the out of state money that poured in and the conspiracy to commit fraud in the social media groups that sprang up… against the law… but largely unpunished after the fact.

If Judge Moore wins the primary, he’s the guy. All the GOP that warned us against Moore are the same folks that tried HARD to keep us from electing Trump. Think about it.

    I was with you until the next to last sentence. Wrong cult.

    artichoke in reply to RobM. | June 21, 2019 at 2:31 am

    I can’t understand Mitch there. Unless Mitch thought he was a loser anyway, it’s Mitch’s job to promote the Republican majority, so he should be helping the R candidate.

    The problem is that if Moore is perceived as “creepy”, any smart politician will run to disassociate himself from that.

      Close The Fed in reply to artichoke. | June 21, 2019 at 12:00 pm

      Artichoke, Mitch McConnell is ESTABLISHMENT and LOVES CHINA.

      He ALWAYS works against a true conservative, in every primary. You can find that in the news if you dig deep enough. The msm isn’t going to advertise it.

      Moore is THE BEST for office. HE FIGHTS. HE DOESN’T ACCEPT THE LEFT’S PREMISES.

      GET RID OF THE 10 COMMANDMENTS IN THE COURTHOUSE??? HELL NO.

      HAVE CLERKS GIVE MARRIAGE CERTIFICATES TO SAME-SEX “COUPLES”? HELL NO.

      HE’S THE REAL DEAL. I SUPPORT HIM. AND DID.

        artichoke in reply to Close The Fed. | June 21, 2019 at 1:54 pm

        It really doesn’t make much difference which Republican you have, as long as it’s an R not a D.

        The R’s vote as a bloc.

        The D’s vote as a bloc.

        Mitch has said this and it’s true. A single senator can’t get anything done. It’s a team sport, and you want your team to outnumber the other team.

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | June 20, 2019 at 9:00 pm

NO MOORE!!!!!!!!!!!

Was anything ever proved in the charges leveled at him? Don’t recall following it.

    gospace in reply to 4fun. | June 20, 2019 at 9:34 pm

    There were no charges, only allegations, and nebulous ones at that. And once the election was over, they all disappeared, having served their purpose. Not that can’t be resurrected from the grave to be used again.

    franker in reply to 4fun. | June 20, 2019 at 9:50 pm

    I’m sure they were not.

    All of the bugs just slithered back under their rocks until they were useful again and asked to crawl out by the DNC.

    LOL

    artichoke in reply to 4fun. | June 21, 2019 at 2:34 am

    From what I saw on the news, the main thing was stuff like that he spent time in diners with underage girls. There really wasn’t an allegation of rape, well there was one but it was convincingly disproven and I doubt that hurt, may have ended up helping.

    But just the fact that he was spending unusual time (even in a public place like a diner) with an underage girl seems to have creeped out the AL electorate. I believe they overreacted.

    On the other hand Doug Jones wasn’t such a strong opponent, and he’ll be stronger now running as an incumbent who has made no embarraassing mistakes. Jones has been more moderate than most Dems, too.

      artichoke in reply to artichoke. | June 21, 2019 at 2:01 pm

      To those downvoting, I am not saying I want Jones to win. I believe he’ll pull a Sherrod Brown and run hard left the minute he has a full 6 year term ahead of him, as a Dem team player.

      I am just saying Jones has positioned himself well and it will take a strong R candidate, stronger than Moore was in the special election, to beat him.

    Close The Fed in reply to 4fun. | June 21, 2019 at 12:01 pm

    He sued one or two of them.
    Turns out Leah Corfman’s own attorney banged her.

No. Just, no.

I wouldn’t vote for Moore even to keep a Democrat out of office. But not because of the imaginary accusations of girl trouble; it would be because of Roy’s Excellent Ten Commandments Adventure. He has no place in any federal office and I won’t vote to put him in one.

On the other hand, I’m not an Alabama voter, so how I won’t vote is of no consequence.

    Sanddog in reply to tom_swift. | June 20, 2019 at 10:37 pm

    Moore is a huckster who preys on the uneducated and insecure. If I lived in Alabama, I’d have to sit out that vote because there’s no lesser of two evils between him and a democrat.

    franker in reply to tom_swift. | June 20, 2019 at 10:46 pm

    I would vote for Moore in a heartbeat!

    Hell, I would even vote for Tuberville (although he was a crappy coach).

    Dems support all this Trans Crap and even killing babies when they are just about to come out of the womb! What a bunch of Moral Degenerates!

    BFD with this Commandment Crap!

    Compared to the Evil the Dems are spewing!

    Barry in reply to tom_swift. | June 21, 2019 at 12:55 am

    Lessee, I got a republican senator from Utah, one from Alaska, and one from Maine that are all POS.

    Yea, don’t particularly like Moore, but he is certainly an improvement over the above.

    Close The Fed in reply to tom_swift. | June 21, 2019 at 12:04 pm

    Tom Swift has accepted the dem’s interpretation and application of the Bill of Rights.

    They’ve co-opted you, and you don’t even know it.

    Anyone care to learn that we have NO “wall of separation” between church and state. That is a lie.

    Learn your own country. Incorporation was a big fat overreach. Or usurpation if you wish to be technical.

    artichoke in reply to tom_swift. | June 21, 2019 at 1:57 pm

    I liked the 10 Commandments. I didn’t see Buddhists or whatever other non-Abrahamic believers protesting.

    If they don’t like them, which commandment do they disagree with?

    If they think it pushes the Establishment Clause, fine let them go to court and we’ll get a ruling.

SpaceInvader | June 20, 2019 at 11:01 pm

No. No no no. no. no no no. I actually live in Alabama and held my nose to vote for Moore the last time. He’s not a good candidate. Roy just needs to stay out of the race. Alabama needs a Republican choice that Republicans can vote for without holding their noses.

SpaceInvader | June 20, 2019 at 11:04 pm

In one of the most important races in a very red state Moore lost to the Democrat! Why in the heck would he run again? Nothing personal Roy. I voted for you last time. Stay out.

The voters in the primary will select Riy Moore as those that vote in primaries love his stick to it and fight.

Pest

But can’t the GOP say, no, you cannot run in our party

His candidacy might highlight Jo Biden’s peccadilloes.

I forget, why am I supposed to hate this guy again?

    Cause the Dems and the News Dudes said so….

    artichoke in reply to rdmdawg. | June 21, 2019 at 4:14 pm

    My reason would be that Jones will be harder to beat this time than last, and the facts will be about the same this time as last, when he lost already.

    Why doesn’t Sessions step up and take back the seat for the Republicans? Beating an incombent is not easy, and Jones is now an incumbent.

    And if he’s elected to a full 6 year term, you’ll suddenly see a far-left radical communistic Jones. Just look at what happened to Sherrod Brown with a new lease on life. From humble to horrible.

    So we need the R candidate most likely to win. That’s all that matters.

Anyone who wants to complain about Moore can…. and when you protest the tactics used on Kavanaugh, you’ll out yourself as a hypocrite. Because Moore was Kavanaugh 1.0: 30 year old events which no one said anything about at the time, forged evidence, paid accusers, he got them all.

    Barry in reply to SDN. | June 21, 2019 at 10:14 am

    Yep, and it should not be forgotten, the neverTrumpers were cheering the despicable democrats corrupt tactics.

    There was zero difference in what was done to Kavanaugh and Moore.

    I never liked Moore, still don’t. But I called out the tactics of the left and those that supported them,

    and I would vote for Moore over the democrat in a heartbeat.

inspectorudy | June 21, 2019 at 11:23 am

I think that the voters of AL have had enough of Roy. I know that they feel that he was railroaded like Kavanaugh but his time is over. They will not vote for him in the primary in the numbers required for the nomination. I believe that due to his nonresponse to the troubling allegations, he has lost many who supported him. We all know that there was a smear campaign going on but the subject of that campaign was not of the caliber that Kavanaugh was. It’s time to move on Roy.

Close The Fed | June 21, 2019 at 12:07 pm

If you REALLY want D.C. drained, if you REALLY do, you’ll support Moore, vote for Moore, and be damn thankful if he’s elected.

That son-of-a-bitch won’t change his mind on right and wrong just because some out of control court tells him to. The courts are sick and a dozen Roy Moores would solve that problem!

ANYBODY BUT JONES! As someone said earlier, with a six-year term, this piece of excrement will be farther left than AOC. Yes, Judge, you got screwed in 2018, but now you’re going to not only screw Alabama but the Republican party and consequently the entire nation. Please ride your horse off into the sunset!

Please go away. You’re an embarrassment to the Grand Old Party, the one party still capable (barely) of shame.

If Roy Moore shouldn’t run because of old “serious allegatons”, you should call for Kavanaugh to be impeached.

Doesn’t anyone else have any principles? 11th hour accusations of something decades ago that can’t be proven including a pileon with false or tampered evidence? It describes both.

Moore is not beholden to McCuckold which was the original problem (big cash from McC to Luther STRANGE in the run-off). Moore is pro-life, and pro-constitution. I have a few more questions on the issues, but that should decide your vote, not who is most electable like Romney (over Ron Paul, but how do you like him in the Senate?)

    txvet2 in reply to tz. | June 22, 2019 at 12:53 am

    Seems like people here have conveniently forgotten that Trump endorsed Strange, too. I suppose that makes him a “never-Trumper” too? And, oh yeah, about those “younger women” and allegations of improper sexual advances, seems to me that somebody else had some problems with that, too.
