Former President Obama, the gift that keeps on giving, sending recorded calls for Jones
Former President (boy it feels good to say that) Barack Hussein Obama is the gift that just keeps on giving. Obama and former Vice President Joe Biden have recorded calls urging turnout in Alabama’s heated race for U.S. Senate.
A person familiar with the campaign said Monday that the Former President had recorded a message in support of Democrat Doug Jones. Jones is attempting to become the first Alabama Democrat elected to the U.S. Senate in 25 years. He is locked in a heated battle with Republican Roy Moore.
Biden held a rally for Jones in Birmingham, Ala. earlier this year and has also recorded a call for Jones. Biden had toyed with the idea of running in 2020. But with the library of pictures of him groping women and little girls he would be a fool to run.
The Jones camp is sending out dozens of types of calls on the eve of the election to urge turnout. They include a news clip in which Republican (swamp creature) Sen. Richard Shelby said that Alabama deserves better than Moore.
President Donald Trump has recorded a call urging people to vote for Moore.
An official has quit the Republican National Committee over the GOP’s support of Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, who faces accusations of sexual assault and harassment.

Joyce Simmons, the GOP national committee woman from Nebraska, emailed the 168-member governing body Monday to inform them that she had tendered her resignation. She writes: “I strongly disagree with the recent RNC financial support directed to the Alabama Republican Party for use in the Roy Moore race.”
Simmons adds that she wishes she could have continued her service “to the national Republican Party that I used to know well.′
The RNC had pulled support from Moore after the allegations surfaced against him last month. But the organization re-entered the race once President Donald Trump endorsed Moore, citing the need for a Republican in the seat.
Republican Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones are making their final pushes ahead of Tuesday’s special Senate election in Alabama.
Jones and Democrats are framing the election as a way for Alabama to reject its history of politicians with baggage that hampers the state.
Republicans say it’s about keeping a conservative hold on Alabama and not giving Democrats any opportunity to derail President Donald Trump’s agenda before the 2018 midterms.
In truth, the matchup is a mix of Alabama’s history and the partisan divides plaguing Washington.
Jones says it would be disastrous to elect Moore after the former judge was accused of sexual misconduct with teenage girls. Moore denies the charges.
Moore and other Republicans say Jones would be a puppet of liberal Democratic leaders out of step with Alabama. There is absolutely no doubt that Jones would be a puppet for the Democrats as no Democrat has voted for the Trump agenda. The Democrat party and Former President are reduced to being sexual predators and an obstructionist.
