GOP nightmare as Alabama's Roy Moore signals he might run again
by David M. Drucker

Roy Moore, a conservative lightening rod who cost the Republican party a Senate seat in deep-red Alabama, is signaling fresh interest in mounting another campaign in 2020, sparking alarm on the right that Democratic Sen. Doug Jones could be gifted another unlikely victory.

Moore, 72, a former state judge, made the rounds at last Friday’s Alabama Republican Party dinner gala. A few days later, a new political action committee run by Moore’s son, Caleb Moore, issued an email fundraising appeal.

Republican insiders, including conservative allies of President Trump, fret that Moore — derailed by sexual assault allegations in a 2017 special election that should have been an easy layup — might divide the party in the primary and advance to a rematch with Jones. On Wednesday, a Moore confidant pointedly declined to rule out that his buddy might run for Senate next year.

“That’s a good question,” Dean Young, Moore’s close friend and adviser for the past two decades, told the Washington Examiner when asked if the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court was preparing to challenge Jones. “I’m not at liberty to say anything about that right now.”

WTF is he thinking. Is this his impersonator of Romney or Hillary?

Maybe a less important race than this. The GOP has made it clear they want nothing to do with him, and now Jones has incumbency on his side. That seat is too high of a priority to risk squandering it again.

Actually, the Republican Party is to blame for losing that seat.  Ok, so they didn't like Moore.  Frankly, neither did I.  But he was the party candidate and the party should have done a better job of defending and promoting Moore.
:amen: 

The Republican Party needs to RESPECT the will of voters in the individual states and STOP imposing its will on them!

He’s a nightmare because he is certain to lose a seat that we can’t afford to serve up to the Left on a silver platter. Plus, he’s a pedophilic perv...so there’s that too.

If he loses the seat it is because the bastards at the GOP don't support him. Funny how that works. When it's a RINO, OMG we have to support him because we need butts in the seats, but if it's a conservative, it's fine for the RNC to yank his funding and run alternatives, deliberately crapping on the guy till a democrat wins.

How very transparent.

And the pedophile crap is pure bullshit and you know it.

@Bigun

This is why I don’t take politics seriously anymore—it’s become rock-bottom stupid.  Conservatives are all about the hive mind now, every bit as much as the left.  How dare anyone think for themselves!  It doesn’t matter that Moore is a pervert and a creep ( or that he has a history of shady financial crap).  You’re supposed to ignore it all because he has an R after his name.  Or you’re an eevul socialist plant!!!!

Oh, well.  You can call me a leftist based on that all you want.  It’s good comedy.  But it makes you a clown.

I ignore it because I know it to be a flat out LIE not the result of any hive mentality!  But you are free to continue allowing the media to tell you what to think!

The republicrats never had anything to do w/principled conservatism. Never!!!
It would be refreshing if the usual suspects grasped that, say once in a lifetime.

You are talking about the pedophile who lost his job twice.  Looks his new job is just to campaign and never win.

I would prefer Moore forget about running again
