Alabama’s Republican Senate Primary Pits Anti Establishment Candidates Versus Establishment Candidate

Folks, the Alabama primary on Tuesday, August 15th is truly Anti Establishment candidates (Pro Trump) versus Establishment candidate (Pro Mitch McConnell). The ramifications of the final results will send a massive tsunami throughout D.C. The top two candidates move on to a runoff in September. Mitch McConnell has gone all in on Luther Strange. Karl Rove’s PAC will spend anywhere from 6 to 8 million dollars on the race that ends next Tuesday. Luther Strange is a McConnell puppet.

Mo Brooks and Roy Moore are anti Mitch McConnell candidates. Both have stated that if elected, they will not vote for Mitch McConnell to continue to be the GOP Leader in the Senate. McConnell is extremely pissed off that the RNC has refused to spend a single dollar on Luther Strange. Our President has sat this race out. He will not back any of the candidates. Mitch McConnell and his cronies will see that as a slap in Mitch’s face.

Breitbart just came out with an article today showing the latest poll results. They don’t look that good for ole Luther. If Luther Strange fails to make the runoff with the financial backing of McConnell and his PAC, Establishment Republicans will realize that their jobs are all in extreme jeopardy because money and a splitter strategy don’t work in this day and age. Jeff Flake is DEAD and he knows it. Dean Heller is scared out of his mind that our Lion will back a primary candidate. Mitch, Ms. Lindsey Graham and Ben Sasse all run in 20′ when our President runs for reelection. If Governor Bevin runs against Mitch, he will absolutely Primary him. No Election to date will have more importance than this one!

From the article linked above:

He has to protect incumbent Republican members, prevent rogue elements from infiltrating his caucus, and keep the president at bay. And all of these challenges are coming to a head right now.

Having narrowly failed to pass the “skinny repeal,” the leader of the fractured majority can ill afford to lose a single ally. However, that’s just what could happen on Aug. 15, when a McConnell loyalist, Sen. Luther Strange, will try to fend off conservative challenges from Rep. Mo Brooks and former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore.

Just as McConnell did in 2014, when he helped endangered incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran fend off a nasty and crazy primary challenge in Mississippi (a bizarre one that ultimately resulted in a suicide), he’s again going all-in on protecting his guy, with his Senate Leadership Fund pledging to spend upwards of $8 million to ensure Strange stays in the U.S. Senate.

From the article linked above:

About a week out from the all-important GOP primary for the U.S. Senate seat in Alabama vacated by now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the Washington, DC, establishment candidate is slumping as two pro-President Trump conservatives surge. A new poll provided exclusively to Breitbart News by JMC Analytics, a Louisiana-based polling firm, shows Luther Strange tapering off in the polls as Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) surges behind him and former state Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore remains steady in first place.

The poll shows Moore at 30 percent, Strange at 22 percent, and Brooks at 19 percent. Others combine for a total of 12 percent, while 17 percent are undecided. The poll of 500 Alabamians likely to vote in next Tuesday’s primary was conducted from August 5 to August 6—during the weekend—with a 95 percent confidence interval and a margin of error of 4.4 percent. Assuming these numbers are accurate, they show Brooks surging behind Strange inside the margin of error in the final days—a silent majority similar to the one that elected President Donald Trump—while Moore maintains a solid lead at the top.

The top-two vote-getters in next Tuesday’s primary will head to a runoff in September, and if Alabamians send Strange—who was appointed into the seat under questionable circumstances—packing, it would send a major message to Washington, DC. The GOP establishment, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, has aligned behind Strange, running millions of dollars of falsified attack ads inaccurately accusing Brooks of being anti-Trump. The attack ads have backfired, poll shows.

Both Brooks and Moore have condemned the phony ads from the Senate Leadership Fund in Alabama, which is run by anti-Trump Karl Rove acolyte Steven Law. Brooks was a supporter of Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in the GOP primary for president, but then strongly backed Trump in the general election.

What’s more, as pollster John Couvillon told Breitbart News when providing the poll, it would show that despite the incumbency he was provided when appointed into Sessions’ seat and the millions of dollars spent on his behalf, Strange’s lack of support of the Trump agenda has made it hard for him to connect to voters in Alabama.

“Despite his incumbency and up to $8 million dollars being spent on his behalf (appointed) Senator Luther Strange is struggling to connect with GOP primary voters in Alabama,” Couvillon said in an email.
