“Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell sure is popular … in Washington. Elsewhere? Well … In Alabama, a Republican runoff on the 26th pits controversial Judge Roy Moore, who gained national attention fighting to keep a Ten Commandments monument on court grounds, against U.S. Senator Luther Strange, appointed to the office by Governor Robert Bentley. … McConnell has poured nearly $7 million from the Senate Leadership Fund into Strange’s campaign, giving the incumbent what the Birmingham News called ‘a staggering financial edge over Moore.’ And yet the paper’s report also noted that this ‘money advantage has not translated so far into votes.'” (09/08/17)
