The epic Alabama Senate race between Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones will be finally be decided today. After weeks of intense media attention, thanks to the allegations of sexual misconduct levied at Moore, we’re finally going to see what the people of Alabama think about the scandal.
In the final days leading up to the grand finale, many Alabama Republicans have come out and admitted that they’ll be voting for Moore, if for no other reason but to keep the important Senate seat under the GOP’s control. President Trump has remained steadfast and loyal to Moore throughout the entire ordeal, much to the dismay of his handlers and the party. The president also sent the embattled candidate one last good luck charm, in the form of a young interviewer.
As reported at AL.com, a 12-year-old girl named Millie March, who first rose to fame for unbridled support for Trump during the 2016 campaign, was sent by a pro-trump PAC to Alabama, where she conducted a sit-down interview with Moore.
The America First Project first posted a video of the interview on Sunday, and in the short time since, it’s elicited a ton of controversy. That’s because one of Moore’s accusers said he molested her when she was only 14 in the 1970s. And although he’s denied the various accusations against him, few in the media and political world have given him the benefit of doubt.
The interview was also surprising because of how few he’s given since the allegations came to light, so it’s almost a middle finger to mainstream liberal press to not only do one with a non-entity but that it was a young girl, which is what the media’s been saying he used to prey upon.
As for what March and Moore talked about, it was mostly the policies he plans to support once in office, like Trump’s wall-building initiative and lower taxes.
When asked the qualities that make a good Senator, Moore replied “following the Constitution, just adhering to principals and not going to get elected again and not trying to stay in office 30 or 40 years and building an empire. You’re there to serve the people.”
Alabamians will have to sort out who and what they believe when they head to the polls today. Regardless who wins, it’s going to be a media circus.
