The GOP is slowly running out of options to stop Roy Moore from competing for the Alabama Senate. In the past week, they’ve tried at multiple intervals to block the still highly popular judge. First, they pressured him publicly and asked him to step down. Moore refused.

Afterwards, the GOP leadership called on President Trump to call for the outing of Judge Moore. Trump also refused.

They have tried to get the Alabama Republican party officials to officially disqualify Mr Moore as their nominee and call a new election. The Alabama officials refused.

The tried to get help from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who also said he wasn’t interested.

Nothing is working. Moore is still in the race and if reports are to be believed, he has never gotten more money from donations than in the past week.

Though Moore is still trailing in the most recent polls by 8 points, pollsters admit that in Alabama anything can happen.

A strategist close to the Senate GOP leadership said: “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.”

Meanwhile, the White House Administration signaled to the GOP leadership that they should simply let the race take its course. White House legislative director Marc Short said: “At some point, we have to trust the people of Alabama to make the right decision.”

“Everyone here in D.C. wants to decide for them what to do. The president weighed in and it's now up to them to make a decision.”

Lastly, the Republican Governor of Alabama, Ms Kay Ivey declared she would be voting for Roy Moore: “We need to have a Republican in the United States Senate to vote on things like the Supreme Court justices, other appointments the Senate has to confirm and make major decisions.”

It's all out war for the dems. Pay no attention to the titty grabber that is sitting as a senator but look here at this poor guy with a bunch of 30 year old accusations. It's sad but I'm afraid this dirty tactic will be commonplace till the swamp dries up or the women willing to fabricate/embellish stories from 1/2 a century ago does.

The headline could have read: "Senate Runs Out of Options To Stop Voters"…..We need to insist McConnell be drummed out, not Moore.
