The Moore campaign said that seventy-six years ago, Christmas was interrupted in America when our military base at Pearl Harbor was attacked without warning.

The Moore campaign said that this historic event offers important context for their next question of Doug Jones. “Will Doug Jones kill our defense industry to fund Obamacare?”

“The world becomes unstable during times of American weakness.  That weakness should never be self-imposed,” said the Moore campaign in a release.  “Our enemies will only stand down when America stands up.  Obama gutted America’s military in a way that not only encouraged our enemies but discouraged our allies and put longstanding relationships with friends like Israel at risk.  Alabama has always been a strong industrial supporter of our military, and we should maintain that role with pride.”

Moore campaign says Jones supports “Bernie Sanders style economics”

U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore blasted his opponent, Doug Jones for supporting “Bernie Sanders style economics” that the Moore campaign claimed, “would crush small businesses, stifle the free market, and make it harder for everyday Alabamians to put food on the table.”

“Small businesses account for around two-thirds of American jobs,” Moore said. “Alabama business owners and entrepreneurs work hard every day to provide quality products, services, and jobs to our communities and they deserve to reap all of the benefits of a free market that is unencumbered by the burdens of the federal government. As your next United States Senator, I will work hard to roll back unnecessary government regulations, remove tax rules that punish small business owners, and join the President in promoting economic policies that put the needs of the American people first.”
