    The steering committee of the Alabama Republican Party issued a statement of no confidence in Republican National Committee Chair Ronna McDaniel and said it would not support her reelection for the position. The RNC is scheduled to elect its next chair at a meeting in February. McDaniel, former leader of the Republican Party in Michigan, has been RNC chair since 2017, when she became the second woman elected to the position. Harmeet Dhillon, an attorney from California, is challenging McDaniel for chair. The Alabama Republican Party steering committee, a 21-member panel, is the main governing body for the state GOP....

    CULLMAN, Ala. (WAFF) - Former President Donald Trump will be visiting Cullman this weekend, it’s his first trip to Alabama in four years. It’s at York Family Farms, the same venue where Rock the South was held the previous weekend, but the Trump rally will likely be even bigger. Alabama Republican Party Chairman John Wahl says he’s expecting a massive crowd of more than 20,000 people, but there’s really no way to know how many there will actually be. Wahl says with it being an outside venue, they can pretty much fit as many people who can make it. With...
  • Will Alabama Republicans make the same mistake twice?

    Next Tuesday, Alabama Republicans voters will go to the polls for a Senate Republican primary runoff election. Alabama is thought of as a conservative state yet is currently being represented by Democrat Doug Jones. How did that happen? Could the same result happen again? Approximately three years ago, Republicans nominated Judge Roy Moore to run in a special election to fill the seat vacated by Senator Jeff Sessions when he became the US Attorney General. Judge Moore was a well-known yet controversial figure in Alabama government. And Alabama Republicans decided to make him their candidate for Senate even though other...

    An Alabama professor obliquely encouraged protesters outraged over the death of George Floyd to pull down monuments that are “celebrating racism and white nationalism” and gave demonstrators detailed instructions on how to “safely” do it. The thread “PSA For ANYONE who might be interested in how to pull down an obelisk* safely from an Egyptologist who never ever in a million years thought this advice might come in handy,” wrote Sarah Parcak, a professor and Egyptologist at The University of Alabama at Birmingham. In the U.S., the most famous obelisk, a tall upright pillar erected as a commemorative monument, is,...
  • Joe Biden: Trump 'more like George Wallace than George Washington'

    Former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday likened President Trump to former Alabama Gov. George Wallace, a vocal adversary of the Civil Rights movement and supporter of segregation. “Trump and Republicans settle on fear and falsehoods as a midterm strategy,” Biden said during a rally at Cheyenne Saloon in Orlando, Fla., CNN reported. "No president has ever led by fear. Not Lincoln. Not Roosevelt. Not Kennedy. Not Reagan. This president is more like George Wallace than George Washington.” Biden said, on the other hand, the Democrats are running on hope and unity instead of fear and division....

    Democratic leaders need a unified caucus to put maximum pressure on a handful of holdout Republicans. Democrats have all the cover they need to vote in lockstep against Brett Kavanaugh. But a half-dozen of them have refused to go there, even after the pair of sexual assault allegations against the Supreme Court nominee. Democratic insiders are feeling more bullish than ever that the party’s 49 caucus members ultimately will oppose Kavanaugh. Yet the undeclared bloc of Democratic senators could be a problem for Democratic leaders, who want to put the weight of the nomination entirely on a handful of holdout...

    U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-California, has cancelled a planned trip to Birmingham due to security concerns. She was scheduled to speak Friday at an annual conference for black female politicians, local officials and community leaders. Waters was supposed to address an audience of black women for the National Organization of Black Elected Legislative (NOBEL) Women's Annual Legislative Conference, which starts today and ends Sunday. But NOBEL President Karen Camper, a state representative from Tennessee, confirmed that Waters was no longer coming because of security reasons. Details about the safety concerns have not been released and it's not known if a...

    Voting precincts have closed in Alabama, Mississippi, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota as eight states hold primaries Tuesday, including in California where the Democratic Party’s plan to regain control of the House of Representatives faces a big test. The Fox News Decision Desk can now project that former pharmaceutical executive Bob Hugin will win Tuesday’s Republican Senate primary in New Jersey. But it is too early to project a winner on the Democratic side, where incumbent Sen. Bob Menendez is battling fellow Democrat Lisa McCormick. Menendez’s corruption and bribery case is expected to play a starring role in...

    President Donald Trump Sunday reiterated support for Roy Moore, the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Alabama, despite numerous allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment against him "We can't let Schumer-Pelosi win this race," Trump posted on Sunday morning. He was referencing Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who head the Democratic contingents in their respective chambers of Congress. Numerous women have come forward to accuse Moore, an ultra-conservative Republican, of various degrees of sexual harassment, including assault, when he was in his 30s more than 30 years ago. One of the accusers was 14 years old...

    The Democrats seem to enjoy gloating about the hot mess that is the Republican Party these days. Former GOP presidents warning the president about the people he surrounds himself with; sitting Republican U.S. senators calling the president unstable and unqualified; and a former GOP speaker of the house saying "there is no Republican Party. The president isn't a Republican." And Democrats' friends in the mainstream media have kindly created an echo chamber that makes them think that they are always right and the Republicans are a bunch of sexist, racist, whack jobs. So why aren't they winning? They must be...

    In less than a month, Alabama voters will decide whether to send to the United States Senate a man accused of abusing and romantically pursuing teenage girls. If Roy Moore wins, it will mean his constituents either don’t believe or don’t care about the woman who says Moore assaulted her when she was 16, or the woman who says Moore kissed and touched her when she was 14, or the women who say Moore kept approaching them at the mall when they were teenagers. And a Moore victory will set the standard that someone who is the subject of multiple...

    Alabama Senate candidate Doug Jones's surging campaign is in danger of falling short in its must-reach goal of energizing African-American voters, the Washington Post reported. "As of this day, I would say no," retired UPS worker Donald Williams told the Post about enthusiasm among black voters. "And this is Doug Jones's problem. He's got to get out and get the voters energized." Amid a string of sexual misconduct allegations that've rocked the campaign of GOP candidate Roy Moore, the Jones camp believes he could pull off an unlikely victory if he can mobilize African-American voters, who make up about a...

    Doug Jones – the Democratic Senate candidate looking to capitalize on sexual harassment allegations waged against Republican rival Roy Moore – is trying to change his radical anti-life, pro-abortion stance to usher in the pro-life votes of his competitor. Dubbed a full-term abortion backer from his own comments and political platform, Jones is reportedly attempting to mask his extreme views on abortion to court Alabama voters in an overwhelming pro-life state. The old Kerry flip-flop? Looking to distance himself from previous comments he made on the hot-button issue – including the fact that he rejects any restrictions on abortion until...

Bannon, who's currently traveling in Japan, plans to appear alongside Moore at a December 5 campaign rally, the source confirmed. 'The Drudge Report is entirely fake news, he stands with Moore,' the source said, pointing to a Drudge headline – 'Bannon Turns on Judge Whore?' – which linked to a Daily Beast report that said Bannon was quietly taking the temperate of those in his inner circle about...

    After the Washington Post reported Thursday that Senate candidate Roy Moore of Alabama had allegedly tried to initiate sex with a 14-year-old girl when he was a 32-year-old county prosecutor, national Republicans quickly distanced themselves. The National Republican Senatorial Committee severed fundraising ties with Moore’s campaign. More than a dozen of Moore’s would-be Republican colleagues so far have questioned whether he is fit to be in the Senate, including Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Even Alabama’s senior senator, Richard Shelby, called on Moore to step aside from the December 12 special election if the charges are true. President Donald Trump also...

    He’s not saying Moore should go “if” the sexual assault allegations are true. He’s telling him to get out now. Mitt Romney called on Roy Moore to step aside from the Alabama Senate race Friday, becoming one of the only Republican politicians to say, unequivocally, that Moore should go in light of accusations that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. (TWEET-AT-LINK) On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that four women said Moore pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were between the ages of 14 and 18. The most serious case involves Leigh Corfman, who was 14...
