Embattled U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore and his wife Kayla are not conceding one inch to their naysayers as the mainstream media, liberals, and many Republicans call for Roy to quit the race and let Democrat candidate Doug Jones take U.S. Attorney General Jeff Session’s vacated seat.
While many of Roy’s long-time supporters are conflicted over whether to continue to support him as numerous woman accuse him of sexual misconduct in the past, his wife is working to make it clear to the nation that the crowd of those who will proudly vote for him is still large in number.
Kayla stood up in front of a crowd of supporters at a “Women for Moore” rally in Alabama on Friday, according to the Politico, defending her husband’s staunch conservative record, blasting Jones as an “ultra-liberal,” and calling the allegations against her husband baseless.
She accused the Washington Post of being on a “witch hunt” against her husband, intensely investigating everyone she and her husband have ever had a connection with since the first alleged incident four decades ago. She added that she believes the Post does a poor job in verifying the claims people have made against Roy.
But she also threw down the gauntlet, making it clear just how far she and Roy are willing to go to defend his name and fight for conservative leadership.
“Even after all the attacks against me, against my family, against the foundation, and now against my husband, he will not step down. He will not stop fighting for the people of Alabama. In his words, and I quote, ‘I will not stop until they lay me in that box in the ground,’” she made clear to the rally’s crowd.
Kayla also spoke about the enormous amount of support her family has gotten, saying the responses they’ve received are “about 90 percent positive, and most of the negative is from out of state. The people of Alabama understand what’s going on here.”
“My husband, Judge Roy Moore, is fighting for the people of Alabama and has been fighting for over 30 years,” she said with growing emotion. “The people of Alabama know him, what he has done — fighting for life, fighting against abortion, fighting for the acknowledgment of God, fighting for traditional marriage, and fighting to protect the Second Amendment. And fighting for our rights, given by God, protected by our Constitution.”
She also addressed President Trump, saying he should thank her and Roy because they’ve been taking away attention from the liberal media’s “witch hunt” to try to find evidence of collusion between Trump and Russia.
So does Moore still have a chance to win the Dec. 12 special election? According to a recent Fox News poll, Moore has fallen behind Jones, but they are only separated by eight points.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told the nation on Thursday that Trump wants to leave it up to the voters of Alabama to decide at the polls if they think Moore is fit to be their senator, USA Today reports.
