Christian constitutionalist and former judge Roy Moore handily won the first stage of Alabama’s Republican primary for a U.S. Senate seat last night, setting the stage for an epic battle next month between the “elitist” national GOP establishment and conservatives who want the D.C. “swamp” drained.
The strongly pro-life and pro-natural marriage Moore cruised to victory in a nine-man Republican field, winning almost 39 percent of the vote to almost 33 percent for current Alabama Sen. Luther Strange. A former Alabama Attorney General, Strange received President Trump’s endorsement and millions of dollars in support from a Senate PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“WE’RE ON TO THE RUNOFF! Time for Conservatives across Alabama to unite and deliver a knockout punch to the establishment! #ALSen,” Moore, the former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice who lost his job last year fighting to preserve Alabama’s natural marriage law after the U.S. Supreme Court imposed homosexual “marriage” on the nation, tweeted at 9:02 last night, with his victory assured.
Conservative Congressman and House Freedom Caucus member Mo Brooks — whose campaign could not recover from a wave of McConnell-allied, sometimes-vicious attack ads — came in third with almost 20 percent of the vote.
