Trump Endorses Judge Roy Moore – RNC To Back Moore Campaign

Yesterday, President Trump publicly endorsed Judge Roy Moore for the United States Senate.

“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” President Trump tweeted on Monday, before he formally endorsed Judge Moore during a telephone Trump tweet Moorecall. “We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more.”

Moore thanked Trump for his support in a release posted yesterday.

"I am honored to receive the support and endorsement of President Donald Trump," Moore said in the statement. "President Trump knows that the future of his conservative agenda in Congress hinges on this election. I look forward to fighting alongside the President to strengthen our military, secure our border, protect our gun rights, defend the sanctity of life, and confirm conservative judges to courts around this nation. We had a good conversation over the phone today and are working together towards conservative victory on December 12."

After President Trump’s endorsement, the Republican National Committee backtracked on its decision to cut ties with the Moore campaign and has “switched on a financial spigot that could prove crucial in the race’s closing days” as Richard Fausset, Alan Blinder and Jonathan Martin put it their reporting on the Trump endorsement for The New York Times.

Two factors appear to have moved Trump to back Judge Moore more publicly, claim Fausset, Blinder and Martin: He likes to associate with winners, and Judge Moore has apparently stabilized in the polls.

“The biggest benefit we get from this is momentum and excitement about the campaign,” said Bill Armistead, the chairman of Judge Moore’s campaign, who said Moore would not attend the president’s Pensacola rally according to reporting by Fausset, Blinder and Martin.

On Monday in Auburn, a college town that is the cultural heart of a county where Mr. Trump won 59 percent of the vote, Andrew Orman said the president’s endorsement affirmed his support for Mr. Moore. And he thought it wise that Republicans in Washington seemed to be moving away from condemnation and toward insistence that Alabama voters should make up their own minds.

“Let the people use their own judgment or whatever,” Mr. Orman said according to Fausset, Blinder and Martin.

“We stand with the president,” a senior RNC official told Breitbart News reports our friend Matthew Boyle.

The RNC notified the RNC members from Alabama on Monday afternoon that the national party would resume financial support to back the state party in its efforts to elect Moore to the U.S. Senate. At this time, since this development is fresh, it remains unclear exactly what that means, but sources close to RNC leadership said that it would become apparent in the coming days according to Boyle’s reporting.

An RNC official told Business Insider Moore has the committee's support in the form of money and staff working to get him elected in the Dec. 12 special election.

In the meantime, the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Mitch McConnell’s political arm, that pour millions into the primary behind the candidate that Roy Moore defeated by almost 10 points is still refusing to back Moore and Senators John Thune, Rob Portman and Cory Gardner have yet to join McConnell in backing off their unfounded criticism of Judge Moore.

Exactly how much the rapprochement with RNC is worth at this late date remains to be seen, however, the President’s endorsement and the RNC getting back in the race send a strong signal to other donors that they should back Roy Moore.

The most powerful slogan in American politics is the simple phrase, “Send them a message.” As the Alabama Senate election approaches conservatives can send the Republican establishment and the DC swamp an unmistakable message by supporting and voting for Judge Roy Moore for Senate.

To “send them a message” is one reason why we urge all CHQ readers in Alabama to vote for Roy Moore in the December 12 Senate election – and if you don’t live in Alabama and can’t vote for Judge Moore you can still send Mitch McConnell, John Thune, Rob Portman and Cory Gardner and the rest of the DC swamp a message by donating directly to Judge Moore’s campaign through this link.
