Source: New York Daily News

“Roy Moore lunched with the Senate Republican establishment he has repeatedly derided. The Alabama Senate candidate and former jurist joined Vice President Mike Pence and GOP senators at their weekly, closed-door policy luncheon on Tuesday. Republicans, who had mostly favored appointed Sen. Luther Strange, have endorsed Moore as they look ahead to the Dec. 12 special election to fill the seat held for years by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. merging from the luncheon, Moore faced questions from reporters about past statements on religion and his criticism of Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. Moore has said Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., should not be allowed to serve in Congress because he’s a Muslim.” (10/31/17)
