The next step in draining the swamp will have to do with changes in congress. The do-nothing obstructionists need to be booted out and in a number of states, establishment GOP candidates are being challenged in primary season.
Alabama has an opportunity to boot out Luther Strange and Mike Huckabee thinks Judge Roy Moore is just the guy to do that.
Breitbart has the details:
Monday in an op-ed posted on his website, former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) endorsed former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate special election GOP primary runoff set for September 26 in the Yellowhammer State.
Moore faces Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), who was appointed earlier this year by-then Gov. Robert Bentley (R-AL). That was not something that went unnoticed by Huckabee.
“I have good friends in Alabama whose support is split between Senator Luther Strange, who was ‘strangely’ appointed to the post by disgraced Governor Robert Bentley who made the appointment just as he was shown the door and resigned from office), and Judge Roy Moore, who is famous for his fights to preserve the display of the 10 Commandments on state property,” Huckabee wrote.
Huckabee argued Moore’s possible election to the U.S. Senate has the GOP establishment “horrified,” as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and his Senate Leadership Fund super PAC have invested significant resources in Strange’s candidacy.
The Republican establishment’s position on the contest alone was a reason for voters to “make Judge Moore into Senator Moore” according to Huckabee.
… “And that is a good reason to support Judge Moore and hope that it sends a message to the do-nothing Congress that ought to be standing with our President to reform healthcare, taxes, infrastructure, national security, and job-killing regulation. Imagine the progress we’d have if members of Congress were as dedicated to helping the President’s plans for the economy as they are in going on TV to complain about a tweet he sent out.”
Huckabee went on to urge Alabama voters to “mess them up” and pull the lever for Moore.
In other states like Wisconsin, voters also have options to the status quo candidates. Paul Ryan may also be facing a primary. Drain The Swamp.
