Monday, December 11, 2017, Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Roy Moore held a “Drain the Swamp rally” in Midland just 13 hours before Alabama voters go to the polls to decide whether they want to vote for Moore or Democrat Doug Jones to be their senator, replacing Jeff Sessions (R) who vacated the seat to become U.S. attorney general.

“We are not going to stand by and let people from out of state and California control this election,” Judge Roy Moore said. “Three years before I was born, 1944, America was in crisis. We were at war with Adolph Hitler and the armies of Nazi Germany.” President Franklin Delano Roosevelt said on the radio that many would die in that war; but we had faith. Three years later I was born. “In the 1960s, we started to forget God and we started to forget where our strength comes from.”
