The regular cast of RINO characters is pulling their hair out (ok, McCain never had any) as Judge Roy Moore is showing he’s stronger than ever after all their attacks.
That’s right, by nearly all accounts Moore is trending up, with growing support from voters and financial backers!
Does that remind you of anyone?
He’s raised $500,000 in just the last 6 days and he poll numbers are going up with each new attack. Voters see right through the hit job!
From The Hill:
Senate Republicans are running out of options in their effort to replace Roy Moore as the party’s nominee in the Alabama Senate race.
In the past week, they tried to pressure Moore to drop out by siding with the women who accused him of sexual misconduct. He refused.
They tried to coax President Trump into calling for Moore’s ouster. Trump declined.
They tried to convince the Alabama Republican Party to disqualify Moore as the nominee or to schedule a new election. Those officials said no.
They tried to find a write-in candidate to challenge Moore, but their first choice, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, signaled through allies he wasn’t interested.
Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), the chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), went so far as to call for a vote to expel Moore from the Senate should he win the Dec. 12 special election.
Nothing has worked. Moore is still in the race.
Senate Republicans are increasingly resigned to the idea that there’s nothing they can do to stop Moore from coming to Washington, short of hoping that Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate, wins the seat.
An NRSC poll leaked this past week showed Moore trailing Jones by 12 points, while a Fox News poll showed him behind by 8 points.
Should Jones win the race, it would reduce the Senate GOP majority to 51 votes and could imperil their ability to pass tax reform and other high priorities.
“While people in Alabama and in Washington hold out some hope that a change could happen between now and election day, that hope is quickly turning into concern that it may never happen,” said a Washington-based strategist close to the Senate GOP leadership about the prospect of replacing Moore as the nominee.
By midweek, the mere mention of Moore’s name prompted anguished looks and exasperated answers from Republican senators.

From the NY Post:
Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore has been raking in the campaign cash ever since controversy exploded last week over allegations of his predatory behavior toward teenage girls in the 1970s.
“Donations have been pouring in from Alabama and from all over the country in an unprecedented way,” Moore campaign manager Brett Doster told The Post on Saturday.
Moore’s campaign raised $500,000 in three days last week and ramped up its online fundraising efforts, Doster said.
The embattled Republican collected more online donations between Nov. 10 and Nov. 15 — the first six days after the scandal broke — than in the six weeks after winning the GOP nomination in a contentious September primary, Doster confirmed.
“We are confident that we will have the resources over the next three weeks to finish strong with victory,” he said.
The rush of donations from the controversial former judge’s conservative fans comes at a critical moment for Moore, who has lost the support of the Republican National Committee and the GOP’s Senate campaign arm in the wake of the explosive allegations.
