Roy Moore running for Senate again


He will likely win this time since he will have Trump's coattails.

I just keep wondering how much the Dems paid him.

People say they aren't running and then run all the time, but I believe the magical little racist elf this time for some reason.

Tommy Tuberville is in.

He certainly seems to face a strong headwind from the national party - McConnell vows to 'vigorously' oppose Moore's Senate bid

I bet he wins the nomination going away. His followers may be batshit, but they're loyal batshit. You don't need the national committee to get the nomination, you just need enough fanatics. This is about the only way Democrats have a prayer at keeping the seat.

Sessions won't run because as a Senator he'd be faced with a choice between being a toady to the man who fired him or being a leper in his own party if he opposes him.

And if Moore manages to GET the nomination McConnell will then give him vigorous support against Doug Jones. Cuz that's what evil pieces of shit do.

I'd vote for Tommy.

He is hated by some Auburn backers, and maybe by the non- Lee county part of the state.

From your link:

Quote:
Former Attorney General and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions (R) hinted to Politico that he is done with politics after his ouster from the Department of Justice despite rumors he was considering running for his old Senate seat in 2020.

"I've been clearing my brain. I think that's a fair statement, told Politico on Wednesday. Ill go to Alabama, do some things and then that will clarify things a little more before I worry about making a statement.

No. I mean, no, he added when asked if he misses the Senate. I could go back and spend time in the woods. Ive got 10 grandchildren, oldest is 11.
I think this translates as "I can't find anybody dumb enough to unpocket serious bucks for my campaign."

He is the gift that keeps on giving. I am more optimistic than the OP. Remember, Democrats run strongest in presidential years.

There's still time for him to turn it around I guess, but it seems that managing to screw up winning as a Republican in Alabama tends to make one rather unpopular even in a Republican primary.
