Alabama Republicans never did fully get behind Roy Moore’s campaign for U.S. Senate.
Moore’s supporters are among the most loyal voters in the state; but Moore failed to unite the Republican Party behind his candidacy.
Moore easily cruised over appointed Sen. Luther Strange in the Republican primary runoff. Moore only had 262,641 votes besting Strange’s 218,505; but in this incredibly heavily-publicized special election he would need more than just primary runoff voters and the Moore campaign and the Alabama Republican Party failed to mobilize the kind of get out the vote effort to increase voter turnout.
