Bridging The Gap
Roy Moore is waging war on Senate leader Mitch McConnell.
  Friday 17 November, 2017
Roy Moore is waging war on Senate leader Mitch McConnell.

MOBILE, Ala. Roy Moore is on the warpath against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

As Republicans here reckon with allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore, their

nominee in next month's Senate election is trying to turn the race into a referendum on

whether McConnell has spent too much time on Alabama politics and too little advancing

President Donald Trump's agenda in Washington.

There are signs that his attacks are resonating with Republicans in some corners of

Alabama.

"I'm picking up a strong sense that people are not happy that people from outside the

state, particularly the Washington establishment, are trying to come in and influence the

election," Noah Wahl, the GOP chairman in north Alabama's Limestone County, said when asked

about McConnell. "He is kind of the whipping boy."

The fight with McConnell which gives Moore a tool to stoke his own base, rally other

anti-establishment Republicans and distract from the allegations against him has all but

eclipsed the rest of his message at a time when many consider his race against Democrat

Doug Jones to be competitive.

In a series of tweets Thursday, Moore accused McConnell of trying to "steal the election

from the people of Alabama," said McConnell "needs to step down," and criticized how

McConnell handled recent allegations of sexual misconduct.
