Alabama Special Election - Moore v Strange

Postby Kane » Fri Sep 22, 2017 3:04 pm

Good primers on the election:

Politico - Choice clear as mud

Politico - Alabama Special Election debate

I want Moore to win here. McConnell's PAC has been supporting Strange with a $5 Million war chest and most polls have showed Moore beating Strange in spite of that. Moreover (pun intended), McConnell fears Moore because he knows the man is a huge disruptor that can't be controlled. He's kinda like Trump - as evidenced by his removal from the state Supreme Court twice now. This would further complicate anything McConnell tried to get done in the Senate - it's very interesting watching the Senate leader spend a lot of money on one candidate in a race where there is no plausible way any Democrat could win.

The GOP played with fire and now they're getting burned. I want to watch the fire burn longer.

The crazies, aided by Bannon and Palin, are coming for the GOP.

Luther Strange has been shooting up in the Alabama polls since my endorsement. Finish the job - vote today for "Big Luther."

His super PAC just dropped $10 million on a candidate that lost to a ridiculous cartoon character who has just literally pulled a gun at his own campaign rally:

Have fun, Mitch.

TBF though, how much collectively did Clinton and all the GOP Primary candidates spend only to lose to a ridiculous cartoon character?

It's true, the largest cartoon of all is still trying to pull the strings.
