Alabama's Senior Senator Says State GOP Should Revoke Moore Nomination

Source: Talking Points Memo




By CAMERON JOSEPH Published NOVEMBER 14, 2017 5:22 PM

One of Alabama’s most powerful Republicans said Tuesday that the state GOP should pull its nomination of Senate candidate Roy Moore.

“If they pull him then they have another candidate. I said I’d like to see another candidate,” Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) told TPM when pressed on whether the state party should un-endorse Moore and back a write-in candidate.

That’s a step farther than Shelby had previously been willing to go. On Monday he’d told TPM it was a decision for state steering committee, which plans to meet later this week to determine Moore’s fate.

The 21-member committee of local Republicans is the only group with any real power to kill Moore’s campaign. According to state law, it’s too late to pull Moore off the ballot, but if the state GOP withdraws its endorsement that disqualifies any votes for him and would let the party rally around a write-in.

1. Moore should argue that Shelby used to be a Democrat

they should fight this out to the bitter end!

5. Ha! he was! That's interesting

and apparently he failed pretty badly at running for office as a Dem so he switched parties to run for DA because the governor was Repub

I suppose they could say he was Dem for most of the time he was creeping on young girls

6. This is reminiscent of the Baxley Graddick feud in 1986.

7. Oh, no you don't!

There's an old phrase in the South: "Ya dance with the one whut brung ya."

Most young Southerners wouldn't know what the Hayul that means, but we do. They picked Moore fair and square. They're stuck with the bastard.
