On Monday, President Donald Trump strongly endorsed Moore.

The campaign has been dominated by accusations of sexual misconduct made against Moore by several women, one of whom claimed Moore molested her when she was 14 years old and he was in his early 30s.

Some extensive muckraking by the good folks over at the Washington Examiner revealed that Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore may have started dating his now-wife when she was still married to her former husband. "Embrace it Mitt, he is president of the United States, and commander of armed forces, something you so miserably failed at", Bannon said Tuesday. "Roy Moore is about to win and Donald Trump is flying high". And just like in any other place, one job in Washington tends to credential you for the next job.

As for the allegations against the former judge, Trump has indicated he's satisfied with his subsequent denials. Moore has denied knowing any of the women, but one of them, Debbie Wesson Gibson, shared with the newspaper a card she said was signed by Moore congratulating her on graduating from high school.

Yes, the GOP already welcomes candidates who are despised by party establishment, notorious for incendiary viewpoints, and saddled by accusations of sexual impropriety.

In an op-ed on his website, the Rev. Dwight McKissic of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas, said if Alabama voters elect Moore they are turning their backs on their teenage daughters. I meet a lot of young people who want to get their start in Washington, and that includes a lot of kids from my home state of Alabama. He had cast his lot in with Roy Moore, hoping to cement a populist-evangelical alliance that could dominate the Republican Party.

Porter has argued in the past that biblical floods, such as the one that led Noah to build an ark, were the result of same-sex relationships.

"I had hoped earlier he would withdraw as a candidate", he said.

The fact that a Republican president would endorse a Republican for a Senate race is not really news. Having Moore in the Senate will be a fundraising and messaging gift from God, particularly if they ultimately hound Al Franken from the Senate, which looks increasingly likely.

"This election is a turning point for women in Alabama". Committee selection and membership are ultimately subject to a floor vote of the entire Senate.

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments today in Masterpiece Cakeshop, Ltd. v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission.

"It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones". "We have 7,000 dead and 52,000 casualties, and where were the Romneys during those wars?"

On Dec. 12, the millstone the voters of Alabama should hang about Moore's neck is rejection at the polls. That lends credibility to her allegation.
