Terrible news. When you lose to a long shot Democrat like Doug Jones in the reddest of red states like Alabama, you should do everybody a favor and hang it up.
Alabama Republican Roy Moore, whose all-but-assured 2017 Senate victory in the deep red state was upended by allegations of sexual misconduct, said Friday that he is "seriously considering" another Senate run, AI.com reports. Democrat Doug Jones' Senate seat is up for grabs for 2020.
"I'm seriously considering it," Moore said on Focal Point radio show with Bryan Fischer on American Family Radio. "I think the (2017 race) was stolen. I think that's been pronounced in the national newspapers – The New York Times, The Washington Post even has recognized there was a disinformation campaign going on in September of 2017 by forces outside of Alabama that spent a lot of money not regulated by the FEC in trying to dissuade Republicans from voting and encourage and enrage Democrats."
But then a few weeks before the December special election, The Washington Post first reported -- and CBS News later confirmed -- four women accused Moore of pursuing them when they were teens and he was in his 30s.
The Republican party at first backed away from Moore but he remained defiant and denied the allegations. Eventually the RNC conceded and threw their support behind him. Mr. Trump even recorded a robocall and tweeted on the day of the election "Vote Roy Moore!"
