Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has had trouble pulling his GOP ranks together for almost any issue lately.
True, the senators did approve Neil Gorsuch for the U.S. Supreme Court, but on Obamacare, and a number of other issues, there just hasn’t been a lot of success in reaching unanimity.
It’s partly because he’s working with liberals like Sen. John McCain, who just last week torpedoed an effort to fix some of the more egregious mandate problems with Obamacare. And with conservatives like Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, who frequently lobby for positions of less government, lower taxes and just-let-people-run-their-own-lives.
So imagine adding to that mix a senator who’s been a state Supreme Court chief justice, a well-known and respected leader in his own state, a man who’s documented that he’s intimidated by no one – and someone who describes Islam as a “false religion,” says emphatically that marriage is between one man and one woman and believes – publicly – that America is a nation that owes its founding and survival so far to Almighty God . . .
That’s a very real possibility because the among the nine candidates for the GOP nomination to replace Sen. Jeff Sessions, named by President Trump to be attorney general and still there despite disagreements between the two, is former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.
