Days after former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore took home the most votes in the Republican primary, advancing to the run-off election and potentially moving one step closer to the U.S. Senate, one PAC is making a case for why he should win the run-off over Sen. Luther Strange.
In a Friday email the conservative, Baton Rouge-based Solution Fund PAC emailed Moore’s supporters saying a Republican is expected to win the general election, but if Strange wins over Moore that it’s essentially a loss for Alabama conservatives.
“How many times do we see that a Republican wins the seat, but conservatives lose it? And with our almost non-existent “majority”, we cannot afford to lose another seat,” the email read.
The PAC also made the argument against Strange for accepting former Gov. Robert Bentley‘s appointment to the seat whilst investigating him.
“Judge Moore’s opponent, Luther Strange, has the title of ‘incumbent’ Senator only because he was appointed by disgraced former Gov. Robert Bentley — while supposedly ‘investigating’ Bentley for the crimes that eventually drove Bentley from the governorship in shame. It’s the old boy network at its worst,” the email reads.
Moore faces Strange in a run-off Sept. 26. The winner will advance to a Dec. 12 general election where they will face Democrat Doug Jones.

Conservatives FINALLY won a big Senate primary: but can we hold it?
On Tuesday, conservative Judge Roy Moore (“The Ten Commandments Judge”) came in first place in the Alabama GOP Senate primary, despite being slandered, defamed, and heavily outspent by liberal PACs aligned with gutless Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
But there were 9 candidates in the race, so Judge Moore unfortunately did not break the 50% barrier. That means he now faces a run-off against scandal-plagued liberal Republican Luther Strange.
You see, the Republican nominee is almost certain to win in November, but if Luther Strange beats Judge Moore for the nomination, it’s the same thing as losing that seat, even if Strange wins in November, as expected.
How many times do we see that a Republican wins the seat, but conservatives lose it? And with our almost non-existent “majority”, we cannot afford to lose another seat.
Judge Moore’s opponent, Luther Strange, has the title of “incumbent” Senator only because he was appointed by disgraced former Gov. Robert Bentley — while supposedly “investigating” Bentley for the crimes that eventually drove Bentley from the governorship in shame. It’s the old boy network at its worst.
All of the solid, traditional conservatives have lined up behind Roy Moore, of course, as have celebrities like Chuck Norris and Phil Robertson. Poll volunteers handed voters a card with Franklin Graham’s words of support for the judge as well.
True conservatives love Judge Moore’s unflinching support for restoring our military, repealing Obamacare, building the wall on our southern border, protecting the rights of gun owners, and smashing “Sanctuary Cities.”
They especially love that he is a devout Christian and a true constitutional scholar, who will in all things respect our constitution as the Framers intended.
Yes, it’s fantastic that an unflinching conservative like Judge Moore came in first in that initial primary, but it is quite ominous that Moore was outspent by McConnell and his cronies by a factor of more than twenty to one. Very, very scary numbers!If you are in a position to help us push Judge Moore past that runoff, click on this secure link to donate.
Plus, we know beyond the shadow of a doubt that McConnell and company will spend even more money in the runoff now that it’s down to Strange and Moore.
And we know why. They HATE anyone they know they can’t control.
Judge Roy Moore is one of those rare birds who genuinely cares more about his country and the constitution than he does about pleasing Mitch or the media or the lobbyists or anybody else.
In fact, he’s already proven it: twice.
Judge Moore was removed from the Alabama state Supreme Court when he stood on principle and refused to allow liberals in the federal judiciary to strip Alabama state courthouses of copies of the Ten Commandments.
It was an issue of state sovereignty — and the idiocy of claiming that the Ten Commandments could possibly violate anyone’s right to worship as he pleased.
Judge Moore was right, of course, but the more important point is that he was willing to let that issue cost him his job as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court! He gave up that seat rather than compromise his values. How many politicians do you know who would do that?
The good people of Alabama proceeded to vote Judge Moore right back onto the Supreme Court, where he ran into another matter of conscience: federal courts trying to tell Alabama that homosexual marriage had to be recognized by Alabama courts.
Rather than give in, Judge Moore continued to fight the good fight. He wrote a memo to judicial officers admonishing them that they must obey the laws of the sovereign state of Alabama, rather than the federal edict attempting to create homosexual marriage.
Once again they came after him and ordered that he be suspended from the court. And once again he was out of a job — rather than bend to the Left, he went down fighting, no matter what it cost him.
Isn’t that the kind of approach we need in the Senate right now? Someone who cares more about his MISSION than his POSITION? A man who is willing to stand on principle rather than do as the misguided and cowardly leadership tells him?
My friend, you know as well as I do that our so-called majority in the Senate is only 52 out of 100 votes, and half of those can’t be trusted most the time. The failed Obamacare vote and a dozen other similar tests have proven that we do not really have a majority. We need more seats!
We may pick up a few in 2018, but Judge Moore’s election is to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he became President’s Trump’s Attorney General. It is the only Senate election that will happen between now and 2018, and WE NEED TO KEEP this seat.
Luther Strange is just not the man for the job.
He has already started wobbling on illegal aliens and immigration and the debt ceiling, and already actually opposed the one thing President Trump has especially asked for: to get rid of the 60-vote cloture/filibuster rule that lets the Democrats require us to get 60 votes before we can pass anything.
If Strange refuses to support the President on such a no-brainer as that, we will not be able to trust him on ANYTHING.
Can Judge Roy Moore count on you? Will you support this great American?
Will you make a contribution to put Judge Moore in the Senate?Thank you from Alabama,
