    Becky Gerritson, the president of the Wetumpka Tea Party in Wetumpka, Alabama, just outside Montgomery here, has a message for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s PAC Senate Leadership Fund: Stop deceptively editing videos to attack conservative Judge Roy Moore. Last week, Senate Leadership Fund was caught splicing together videos from two separate events in an out of context manner—in other words deceptively editing videos—to make it appear as though Judge Moore does not support President Donald Trump’s planned border wall. Not just Breitbart News, but PolitiFact too, has called out the McConnell-affiliated organization for the attack ads. Of course, such...

    WASHINGTON — Roy Moore, the Republican front-runner in next week’s special Senate election in Alabama, referred to "reds and yellows fighting" in a campaign speech, a video shows. Moore, the ultra-conservative former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, lamented racial divisions in his remarks on Sunday. "We have blacks and whites fighting, reds and yellows fighting, Democrats and Republicans fighting, men and women fighting," he said. "Red" and "yellow" are widely recognized as racial slurs. Video of Moore's speech was made public by a Republican tracking the race and first reported by The Hill. NBC News also obtained the...

    "A tsunami of Republican Establishment funding and dark money political contributions is hitting Alabama in support of Luther Strange’s high-stakes contest against Roy Moore for the Senate seat once held by Jeff Sessions.... ..Strange has raised at least $3.2 million dollars in this election cycle, nearly double the average for a Senate candidate, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. He finished second in last month’s primary against first-place winner Moore, the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. Most of that has come from large contributors, with less than one percent raised from small individual donors. Political action...
  • Alabama Poll: Roy Moore Leads Luther Strange by 13 Points

    Judge Roy Moore, the conservative candidate in the U.S. Senate GOP primary runoff in Alabama, continues to maintain his commanding lead over the establishment-backed Luther Strange, with a new poll showing the race to be Moore’s to lose. The poll showing Moore with another double digit lead comes as President Donald Trump announced late Saturday he plans to campaign for Strange next weekend, the final Saturday before the all-important runoff election on Sept. 26. Moore, at 50 percent in the new poll, leads Strange who struggles back at 37 percent. There are 13 percent undecided, and Moore’s 13-point lead is...

    Rep. Mo Brooks struck back against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., on Saturday, endorsing former judge Roy Moore over Sen. Luther Strange in the Alabama Senate special election 10 days before Election Day. Brooks, who finished third in round one of the Aug. 15 special GOP primary contest after sustaining million of dollars in political attacks from a super PAC connected to McConnell, made clear that his antipathy toward the Senate majority leader was a motivating factor behind his endorsement of Moore, the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court. "The Strange/McConnell forces care not one twit about...

    With public funding options limited, Alabama transportation officials are turning to the private sector for advice and creative solutions in paying for the massive Interstate 10 overhaul in coastal Alabama.John Cooper, director of the Alabama Department of Transportation, said Monday that state officials were interested in learning more about project plans from approximately 400 private sector attendees during the two-day Industry Forum at the Arthur R. Outlaw Mobile Convention Center.That includes financing, which remains the biggest hurdle toward moving the project forward in the next year. At this point, no options have been settled including whether to institute tolls to...

    A story by CNN’s Andrew Kaczynski and Nathan McDermott published on Thursday features a video showing former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore suggesting the September 11, 2001 terror attacks may have taken place because the country had distanced itself from God. Moore, a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, made the remarks at the Open Door Baptist Church in Enterprise, AL in February. He read from Isaiah 30:12-13 and made the connection.

    This is a typical “Tea Party” story you might have heard from 2010, and indicative of the GOP’s failed attempts to kill the Trump movement. Roy Moore appears set to steamroll Mitch McConnell-backed Luther Strange. The GOP has been pouring money into Alabama to try to defeat Moore, but it looks like a huge waste of cash:

    With a Republican commander-in-chief in the White House, both houses of Congress in Republican hands, and a majority of the U.S. Supreme Court appointed by Republican presidents, it shouldn’t be terribly surprising that Democrats and progressives would be unhappy with Washington, D.C. What might be surprising is how unhappy rank-and-file Republicans and conservatives are with Washington, D.C. Voter surveys have found the GOP-controlled Congress to be more popular among self-described Democrats than self-described Republicans. Contemplate that perverse fact for a moment. Not that regular folks of either the R or D persuasion approve of the Congress, mind you, whether managed...

Thousands of Floridians who evacuated the Atlantic cost to Gulf Coast areas found their safe shelter under direct threat from Hurricane Irma as the forecast shifted W Friday night and Saturday.

    The best day of Sen. Luther Strange’s election campaign was Aug. 8, the day President Donald Trump tweeted that he had “done a great job representing the people of the Great State of Alabama” since being appointed to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions and giving his “complete and total endorsement!” At that time, Strange was running neck-and-neck with fiery social conservative Judge Roy Moore in the polls, and it seemed possible that Trump’s endorsement would push him over the top in the race to Jeff Sessions’ seat. Since then, however, it’s been a perfect storm of bad news for the...

    The Mountain Brook man who has made national headlines over the years for filing several federal lawsuits regarding his desire to marry his computer said he is on a mission to preserve the "integrity of the Constitution." Mark "Chris" Sevier filed a lawsuit in Alabama's Northern District last month stating his rights, along with several "ex-gay" co-plaintiffs, were violated by Gov. Kay Ivey, Attorney General Steve Marshall, and Blount County Probate Judge Chris Green because Sevier's marriage to an Apple computer-- which he claimed to marry in New Mexico-- was not recognized in Blount County. In the filing, Sevier claimed...

    The special Alabama Senate primary is at once the most exciting and the most boring spectacle in politics. Depending on who's keeping score, the contest between Judge Roy Moore and incumbent Sen. Luther Strange will be either blowout or barnburner, slaughter or slugfest. New polling from Montgomery-based Southeast Research suggests the latter. With 19 days before Election Day, according to the poll, Strange is trailing Moore by 16 points: 52 to 36 percent.

    As Luther Strange continues to fail to gain any traction on the campaign trail in his home state of Alabama in the final weeks before the GOP primary runoff, he picked up about the worst endorsement one can get in the Yellowhammer State on Wednesday. The globalist, open borders U.S. Chamber of Commerce threw its weight behind Strange’s flailing campaign with less than three weeks to go until the Sept. 26 runoff, as the GOP frontrunner conservative former Alabama Supreme Court chief justice Roy Moore maintains and extends his commanding lead.

    Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), the chairman of the influential House Freedom Caucus, on Wednesday endorsed Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race, spurning the incumbent backed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and President Trump.  Meadow's decision to back Moore over Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) gives the insurgent candidate one of his biggest endorsements yet ahead of the Sept. 26 GOP primary runoff. In a statement announcing his decision, Meadows took a swipe at McConnell and his allied super PAC, the Senate Leadership Fund, which has spent millions on the airwaves to boost Strange. "The people of Alabama are seeing millions...
