Just like all the other threads, this one will bring a log of comments from people who dont know the first damn thing about Alabama it Alabama politics.
The current slate of candidates is a freaking clown car. The leaders in the polls right now is Ears Tuberville who comes off as a complete moron when taken off his talking points. Then there is Bradley Byrne who is a flipping weather vane and has no statewide name recognition. And the nut job Roy Moore. Plus the Sec of Stste who has no name recognitiin or money.
I have my doubts that any of the current crop could beat Jones, which is the goal.
IIRC, and I’m pretty sure I am, Roy Moore was well regarded by Freepers until he lost. Doug Jones was another corrupt Democrat to them and following the tradition of getting elected to higher office to avoid investigation for questionable financial dealings. Moore was flawed, falsely accused, and far better than the alternative.
The ‘clown car’ has been full for decades in Alabama. Look at the last five governors. Shelby and Sessions are both democrats in republican-clothing.
The chief problem is that you need talk-radio support in the state, and that involves cash. Then you need the Baptist-vote.
I expect Moore to poll around 20-percent of the republican vote, with Sessions and Tubby splitting 60 percent. Neither will have a majority, and it’s mostly a race between Tubby and Sessions in a run-off. If Trump sides with Tubby and makes at least two campaign stops in the primary period...it’s Tubby in the end against Jones.
