It has been so amusing watching all the handwringing by establishment Republicans who were all in for Roy Moore with his cowboy suit & little gun in 2017. Sorry Roy, guess they’re just not that into you anymore.— Doug Jones (@DougJones) May 30, 2019

“There are a lot of Republicans in the state of Alabama who can beat Doug Jones, and Roy Moore has proven that he’s not one of them,” a second GOP strategist told The Hill.But Moore appeared defiant during a slate of interviews on Wednesday and is expected to make a decision about whether or not to enter the race next month.
“I think politics are at work and people behind the scenes are trying to force him to distance himself from me,” Moore told the Times. “It’s wrong. The truth is they know I’ll win if I run.”
