SPECIAL ELECTION DAY IN ALABAMA –
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THIS – Voters in Alabama head to the polls today to cast their ballots in the state’s most consequential election in recent memory. A win by Doug Jones would mark the first time in 25 years Alabamians sent a Democrat to the Senate and would surely fire up the party’s base and fundraising efforts heading into the midterms. A Jones victory in the ruby red state would also move Democrats one step closer to taking back the Senate next year, a scenario that seemed all but impossible just months ago.
If Roy Moore wins, Senate Republicans would immediately face decisions about whether to move forward with an ethics investigation and possible expulsion – a process that could last months, if not years – against the former state Supreme Court justice. Moore’s penchant for controversy could also become a real drag on GOP candidates heading into the midterms and potentially cost Republicans the Senate. And a Moore win would only continue to highlight the disunity between the party’s leaders – President Donald Trump, who has trumpeted the accused child predator, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others, who said Moore should drop out of the race.
Final hours: Moore returned to the campaign trail Monday after nearly a week without events, appearing with Steve Bannon at a rally in south Alabama. “There’s a special place in hell for Republicans who should know better. You know what they’re doing is trying to shut up President Trump and Judge Moore,” Bannon said, referring to Sen. Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), who over the weekend said Alabama “deserves better” than Moore.
Jones campaigned with Alabama native Charles Barkley in Birmingham. “At some point, we got to stop looking like idiots to the nation. I love Alabama, but at some point we have to draw a line in the [sand] and show we’re not a bunch of damn idiots,” Barkley said.
Final polls: “Fox News released a poll showing Jones with a surprising 10-point lead, conflicting with other recent public surveys showing Moore as a slight favorite. A Monmouth poll released later Monday had the race a pure toss-up that will be decided based on which Alabamians show up to vote.”
