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.

Moore 2017 **==

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.
