BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Voters head to the polls Tuesday for a crucial special election for an Alabama Senate seat that could shake Republicans in Washington and upend the party’s plans to expand its majority in 2018.

Outspoken social warrior and former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice Roy Moore was poised to upset Sen. Luther Strange in a GOP primary runoff despite President Trump’s coveted endorsement and the millions party-aligned groups spent on behalf of the genteel conservative appointed in January to replace popular Republican Jeff Sessions.

Senior Republican officials are uneasy. They worry Moore’s victory would fuel a groundswell of enthusiasm on the populist Right, triggering a wave of well-resourced primaries that weaken Republican incumbents — or worse, see them ousted in favor of weak general election nominees, dashing GOP hopes of broadening its 52-seat majority.

To help spark a come-from-behind win, Vice President Mike Pence was in Birmingham on Monday evening to urge Alabama Republicans to grant Strange the right to complete the six-year term Sessions won in 2014. “I’m here to ask every Alabaman to do everything that you can to send Luther Strange back to Washington,” he told a crowd of about 500 that gathered in airplane hanger to hear him turn out the vote for the senator.

    Republicans are beginning to eat their own again, judging from the RINO purging I see here. Prediction: Tea Baggers and Christian Taliban candidates like Moore will indeed put a dent in 2018 GOP primaries, at which point most of the sane people in the country (re: 60-65%) will react with a collective “Are you freaking kidding me??” and vote Democrat. Seriously, if you really *want* to be the New Afghanistan, raise your children in Christian madrasahs, and stone all the scientists who are actually the reason you have any decent jobs in the first place, why don’t you all move to Alabama and secede from the Union? Believe me, nobody will stop you this time.

    This is what the putting Trump into office was all about. This is what we the People want. So why did Trump back the RINO? We want a groundswell of enthusiasm on the populist Right, we want to trigger a wave of well resourced primaries that weaken the Republican incumbents. We want the RINO ousted.

    What the hey, they would be ousted by strong general election nominees who are with we the People. You will get your GOP majority seats and they will be filled by Patriots not snakes. Trump did this for a reason and let himself off the hook by saying that he will back whoever wins. Someone told me he owed the other guy the favor of backing him. Well favor done.

    Alabama, do the right thing: no more swamp dwellers to D.C. Vote Moore!

  • pappy450 says:

    Anyone lyin’ ryan and mcconnell the RINOS want, should be someone that the people of Alabama should run AWAY from asap.(or expect the “swamp” to get yet another “creature” that will do NOTHING for them)

  • Calvin King says:

    It would be wonderful if all establishment RINOs would be primaried out and replaced with true conservative Repubs who would put this nation first and support President Trump’s agenda to do so. Let us hope Roy Moore is the first and that McConnell and Ryan and this Strange fellow follow them out of the Congress. Trump is on the wrong side of this election and at least he has admitted he may be just that. The good folks in Alabama know what they are doing and will elect Roy Moore.

  • Robert Nance says:

    I support Roy Moore 100%. The only way to drain the swamp is to throw establishment Republicans out the window, first order of business. Having done that, vote every single Democrat into yesterday in the general. Yesterday is gone.

  • gvette says:

    I like Trump, and Pence, but they are on the wrong side of this one!

      You know first they took prayer out of the Education System [if you can call it that today] ,then they took the pledge away what is next the flag ??? If these players do not respect our national anthem then they should stay off of the field .Racism does not belong in sporting events . These players are not setting a good example for the nations youth . They have plenty of other ways to express their dislikes .

      1. gvette says:

        I just watched a short vid, where veterans are now supporting the players, and going against Trump. I thought veterans might have half a brain. Now I don’t think so. The players are spitting in their faces, and the fucking fools want to support the ones spitting on them. I’ll change my tune. Fuck those dumb vets!

        1. Retired says:

          I would say those are the ones served during the Clinton through Obama . Many in that time were called to active duty and came home to no jobs . I doubt they were 20+ year active duty .

          1. gvette says:

            You could very well be right!

    A “gentile conservative”is too gentle a description for strange who is, in fact, just another RINO cut in the McConnell/Ryan/Boehner mold. They ALL need to go. Semper Fi!!

    Vote Luther Strange you support the Establishment like Mitch McConnell vote judge Roy Moore support the Conservatives. That is why I support Judge Roy Moore. I wouldn’t support anyone who Mitch McConnell supports. They are a bunch of Lying Establishment Republican who promised to repeal Obamacare and lied to the American people…Time to drain the swamp.

  • J Wayne Watson says:

    I’m praying for Judge Roy Moore to be the next US Senator from Alabama so that the insiders understand that it is We The People that run things and not those with their special interests.

    1. Leslie Woodhull says:

      GOOD! THEN SESSIONS CAN GET TOLD WHAT HE SHOULD BE DOING!!!

      1. goldie says:

        I agree. He’s been such a disappointment!

  • Leslie Woodhull says:

  • Cheh Low says:

    Roy Moore should win Tuesday’s election if people of Alabama have common sense.
