McConnell Says Roy Moore Should Abandon Collapsing Senate Bid

Source: Wall Street Journal

WASHINGTON—Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell deepened his bid to persuade Roy Moore to drop out of the race for an open Alabama Senate seat after accusations the Republican candidate engaged in sexual misconduct with teenage girls.

At The Wall Street Journal CEO Council, the Kentucky Republican suggested he wanted Attorney General Jeff Sessions to run as a write-in candidate instead for his old seat, and he said that if Alabama voters elect Mr. Moore in the Dec. 12 vote, he would immediately face an ethics investigation.

Mr. Sessions would need to run a write-in campaign because it is too late to get on the ballot ahead of the election against Democrat Doug Jones.

“His campaign is collapsing,” said Mr. McConnell, who said that President Donald Trump had called him from Vietnam on Friday mostly to discuss the dilemma the party was facing. “Obviously we’re in a discussion here about how to salvage this seat if possible.”

8. Have you ever tried to organize a write-in campaign?

I have; it's not easy. ESPECIALLY if the guy you don't like is right there on the ballot.

12. I gotta admit im a little impressed they seem to have drawn a line at how morally decrepit

Their candidates can be. I used to think there was no bottom for what they were willing to defend.

3. For a group that tries to push that rugged individualist persona

They sure do quit a lot when it looks like the wind might not be exactly blowing their way.

4. Naturally they're more worried about doing what's best for repub party

Turtle is more worried about the impact on the repub party than on the country or the state of Alabama. Unfortunately (for the repubs) they don't seem to understand the psyche of Crazy Roy.... the more they talk of him dropping out of the race the less likely that it will happen.

Unfortunately, the latest poll by Fox agrees with you:

10. Why the hell would they do a write in for Sessions?

Is he planning on resigning as AG? Why don't they write in Luther Strange?

17. Moore is a symptom and i wouldn't get too invested in it

Cannot you see the writing on the wall? The people who are going to vote for him will lie even until they cast their vote for him also. Polling will also be skewed, and you know how these people work. He wins by a slim margin and the Corporate sponsored Republicans rejoice it as a great win instead of the shame that it is.

How many times does this happen before someone gets a clue?
