Donald Trump Endorsed Not 1 But 2 Losing Candidates In Alabama

Donald Trump Endorsed Not 1 But 2 Losing Candidates In Alabama

Ultimately, Democratic candidate Ralph Northam won - and that appeared to be the result of the stunning 91 percent of black women who supported him. It was worse this time, given the charges of sexual misbehavior against the candidate involving minors, and given the unusually unpopular Republican president.

If Democrats were to recapture both chambers, they would serve as a check on Trump's agenda and might even initiate impeachment proceedings against him. "So much for making America great again, right?" And you know what? While you guys are doing dope and playing checkers on your eco-friendly hemp checkerboards, Donald J. Trump is playing 5-dimensional chess ON YOUR FACES! McConnell may come to find that it's easier to build a majority by attempting to sway the half-dozen or so moderate Democrats - Jones included - on some issues going forward.

Jones' electoral fortunes changed dramatically when The Washington Post reported that Moore had allegedly preyed on teenage girls when he was a district attorney in his 30s - allegations denied by the now 70-year-old former judge. Trump would never have made it through the convention horse-trading that used to drive nominations; Moore would never have survived a process that required support from party officials. But it was also a reaction to Donald Trump and the brutal style of politics that he has introduced.

Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill said Tuesday night "the people of Alabama have spoken" in the Senate race between Democrat Doug Jones and Republican Roy Moore, though Moore has refused to concede. Shelby said last weekend that he, like Gardner, would not support Moore. This campaign has been about the rule of law. But in the past moments of raw, tribal/cultural divisions, our system was always able to produce leaders able to summon our better angels and pull us together to rise to the challenges of the day. Nominate minimally competent and acceptable candidates in those contests and Republicans probably win 3 of them. That is an intensely, intensely personal decision that only she, in consultation with her god, her doctor, her partner or family, that's her choice'.

It's all clear now.

Elsewhere, the British pound hovered at $1.3315 GBP=D4, near two-week lows of $1.3303 touched on Tuesday, although the currency was briefly propped up by data showing British inflation unexpectedly hit a near six-year high in November. That would've been too predictable. The foundation was dormant by 2014, but Trump's victory has helped breathe new life into local organizations, including the Democratic Party in Republican-heavy Shelby County, where officials say membership has jumped from around a dozen to more than 200 people since the 2016 election.
