The polls are mixed and pollsters flummoxed heading into Alabama’s Dec. 12 special election for a Senate seat, with many Republicans leery of both Republican Roy Moore, credibly accused of sexual improprieties with teenage girls as young as 14, and Democrat Doug Jones, because he’s a Democrat. On Monday morning, President Trump moved from criticizing Jones to actively supporting Moore, tweeting: “Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama.” On Sunday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) also warmed to the idea of Moore winning, shifting from urging Moore to drop out of the race to saying he’s “going to let the people of Alabama make the call.”
Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama. We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more. No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!
