Mea culpa. I'll "appologize". Should have gone in this thread though. :notsure:

RNC reinstates support for Moore after Trump endorsement

So Trump has now formally endorsed Moore and so has the RNC.
The Republican National Committee is reinstating its support of Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore after initially cutting ties over allegations of sexual misconduct, The Hill confirmed on Monday.

Breitbart News first reported that the RNC had decided to step back into the race just hours after President Trump fully endorsed the controversial candidate.

Two sources confirmed RNC's renewed support.

"We can confirm our involvement in the Alabama Senate race," an RNC official told The Hill.

A second source close to the RNC told The Hill that "the Breitbart story is real.”

Trump endorsed Moore in a tweet that blasted out to millions of his followers as well as in a follow-up call aboard Air Force One, in which the president said, "Go get 'em, Roy."

The report comes after officials at the RNC and the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), the party's Senate campaign arm, told The Associated Press last month that they would not support Moore even after Trump stood by him.

The two GOP campaign groups cut ties with Moore in October, halting their financial and field support for his bid as a chorus of Republican lawmakers called on him to step aside.

Their decision to break ties with Moore came after a handful of women alleged that he made unwanted sexual advances while they were underaged minors and he was in his 30's.

Early Monday, Trump endorsed Moore, saying his vote is needed to push the Republican agenda in narrowly GOP-controlled Senate.
Can't say I'm surprised. In the end, partisan considerations trump all. Of course he will win too.

Trump will dump him the second the Senate starts investigating him.

Notice how the Democrats were quick to act on a congressman but not Franken. It is all about numbers in the Senate. At least Mitch McConnell and other Republican senators denounced Moore.

I am uncertain he will win--polls still favor his opponent--but he if he wins he enters the Senate with an ethics investigation waiting for him. If the Republicans want Franken out, they have to take out Moore.

Eh, I doubt that a Republican Senate will mount anything but a "show" investigation of Moore. I have no expectations of moral or pseudomoral behavior from politicians.

The only reason I disagree is because the Republican Governor can name a Republican successor. The only positive for Moore is he will make Cruz no longer the most hated Senator.

Of course, that would be the rational thing to do.

Though all the twists and turns and "Trumpery", was there ever any doubt that Moore is going to be in?

Nah. What's the worst he can do? Legalize lynching again?

He'll have to get at least 50 other senators to go along with it.

We'll see ...

Just as an aside, lynching never was legal even though it was a popular entertainment in many places.

The "anti-lynching" laws were passed to make it a federal offense.

Given today's headlines, I take it back, that thing about the vote in 4 days. Stick a fork in it, it's done.

Which headline?
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"
