no it was an offhanded reference to something and he interjected that. The news guy is back and he seems less biased.

FOX has already called it for Jones. Proving that even in red neck Alabama, all you need are allegations to ruin a man's reputation.

But I get it. Had Moore won, the Democrats would never have let o of the hype and the GOP would have cheered them on. Thus limiting Moore's a ability to function as a Senator for Alabama, much less run for re-election in 2018.

I does make things a little bit tougher for the President in Congress. I betting he heals things with Flake and a few other senators.

The Moore campaign had no direction. The "judge" was barely visible for most of the final stretch of the campaign when it counted the most, refused to ever debate Doug Jones which was just weak as hell, and outside of his overzealous, almost cartoonish defenders in the media, had a very weak personal defense in regards to the allegations for most of the time when they were viable.

Also shout-out to political mastermind Steve Bannon for losing Alabama to a pro-choice Democrat.

Congratulations to Doug Jones on a hard fought victory. The write-in votes played a very big factor, but a win is a win. The people of Alabama are great, and the Republicans will have another shot at this seat in a very short period of time. It never ends!

looks like a connection between sleaze and ...well sleaze

Alabama gov bentley surprised (almost) everyone when he appointed Luther Strange to temporarily fill Jeff Sessions' senate seat. Luther was one of the attnys investigating him on the big sex scandal (Bentley violated both ethics and campaign finance laws.); so Bentley gets a slap on the wrist for misdemeanor, BUT...
Good thing that wasn't done on the installment plan, because after Kay Ellen Ivey became governor she moved the election up a year where it fell slap dab in the middle of Roy Moore.

Ain't life funny sometimes?

Politico posts this ONE DAY before the election...

How conveeeenient...

Secret super PAC backing Jones in Alabama exposed

Quote:
A mystery super PAC backing Democrat Doug Jones in Alabama is controlled by a pair of groups closely aligned with the national Democratic Party, even as the candidate strives to dissociate himself from Washington interests.

Highway 31, which dropped more than $4.1 million in support of Jones and against Roy Moore ahead of Tuesday's Senate special election, is a joint project of two of the largest national Democratic super PACs — Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action — along with a group of Alabama Democrats, multiple senior officials familiar with the arrangement told POLITICO.

Highway 31 was created in November, Federal Election Commission filings show. Though Birmingham lawyer Edward Still is listed as the group’s treasurer, it was, in fact, founded jointly with Senate Majority PAC, the outside group closely tied to Democratic leadership in the Senate. Highway 31 has been funded jointly by Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action, the Democratic super PAC that backed Barack Obama in 2012 and Hillary Clinton in 2016, the Democrats briefed on the arrangement told POLITICO.

Still did not respond to a request for comment, and spokesmen for Senate Majority and Priorities declined to comment.
So a super PAC throws $4 million of outside money to the candidate who ran on not being part of the big money machine...

Had the public known this little earlier, it probably would've made a difference...

>I didn't hear Jones say he was running against big money but I'm sure he was. At least until the allegations hit critical mass.

>Dems are finally learning the way Republicans (Wisconsin) win congressional elections.

>Write-ins, Shelby, McConnell, and Sessions probably had more to do with the outcome of this election.

Let's see if Jones can hold on; he comes up for reelection in 2020.

it was a victory for democrats, hard work and the women and African Americans of Alabama. Lets hope the dnc stays on point for awhile. Oh and it was a victory for Mitch McConnell and an equal loss for the one who shall not be named. hint: he holds a pitchfork in snl skits.
