Alabama Was Ultimately a ‘Single-Issue Election’

What happened? 

Alabama voters stunned the nation Tuesday night when the Senate special election results came in. By a narrow margin, they elected Democratic candidate Doug Jones instead of the Republican option, Roy Moore, a former chief justice whose campaign derailed last month after an explosive Washington Post report about his alleged attempt to seduce a 14-year-old girl.

Glenn’s take: 

Glenn reminded listeners today that Moore was never a strong candidate to begin with, even before sexual misconduct allegations rocked his campaign. Voters should have a better choice than voting for Steve Bannon’s candidate or a Democrat.

“Steve Bannon is completely discredited today, and I think Trump is in trouble,” Glenn said. “This was a single-issue election in the end. It was the issue of Moore’s past, and he didn’t have enough or do enough to convince voters of his innocence.”
