On Tuesday night, the 5th Congressional District Republican Executive Committee unanimously adopted a Resolution in support of Roy Moore as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate.
The 5th Congressional District Republican Executive Committee asks the ALGOP Steering Committee to affirm their support of Judge Moore as the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate.
The 5th Congressional District Republican Executive Committee represents Jackson, Limestone, Lauderdale, Madison, and Morgan counties and meets quarterly at Old Greenbrier Restaurant.
This move follows similar resolutions by the Shelby County Republican Party and the Winston County Republican Party.
Later today the Alabama Republican Party Executive Committee will decide whether or not to decertify Roy Moore as the U.S. Senate candidate in the December 12 special election. Moore is expected to address the committee at that meeting.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky) and the powerful Washington Establishment are urging the Committee to decertify Moore as the Alabama Republican Party candidate and to free Republican officeholders and candidates to support a write-in candidate that is more acceptable to Senate leaders and would be less divisive.
Tuesday, Senator McConnell said, “Roy Moore should step aside. The women who have come forward are entirely credible. He is entirely unfit to serve in the United States Senate.”
Moore ran in the primary vowing that if he is elected to the Senate he would not support McConnell to remain as Republican Majority Leader. McConnell and the the Washington lobbyists spent $30 million trying to hoist Luther Strange into the Senate and failed.
