RNC Resumes Funding Moore After Trump Endorsement

CNN reports:

The Republican National Committee will transfer funds to the Alabama Republican Party following President Donald Trump’s endorsement Monday of GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore in that state’s special election next week, according to a senior RNC official.

The official added, “The RNC is the political arm of the president and we support the President.” Breitbart News first reported on the RNC’s move to re-engage in the race.

While Trump and the RNC are backing Moore, the National Republican Senatorial Committee is not changing its stance. An NRSC source says it is staying out of the race and that Chairman Sen. Cory Gardner of Colorado remains committed to this position.

    Of course they did. Party before country as always.

    • Buford

      I’ve said it for a while now… if your divisive, hyper-partisan policy agenda is so dependent upon which party occupies a single Senate seat that you consider supporting an accused child-molester-slash-attempted-rapist to that seat to prevent the other party from getting it, then perhaps your REAL problem is that partisan policy agenda.

      Maybe a better goal would be working to craft a collaborative, bipartisan policy agenda that 60-65% of Congress would be proud to support, regardless of party affiliation.

  • Treant

    I’m quite certain we’re all terribly, terribly shocked by this news and can’t see how they could endorse and fund Moore.

    I find it’s easier if you simply assume they have absolutely zero ethics.

    • clay

      I am surprised they didn’t find a way to do it so it didn’t show on the campaign reports. . .

      unless they now believe it will get the reticent republicans to fall in line.

      • Rambie

        “…it will get the reticent republicans to fall in line”

        Ding! We have a winner. It’s a not-so-subtle way to try and get people having 2nd thoughts to rationalize voting for Moore.

  • Gustav2

    How the self righteous party has fallen. Every dime you contribute to the party, every vote you make for a Republican, supports the abuse of minors.

    • AmeriCanadian

      I’ve always believed that about the Catholic church. Could never understand why, in the light of all of the abuse and scandals, people continue to contribute. They’re feeding the beast.

      • Gustav2

        Contributions have fallen, that’s why they had to “hide money in graveyards” to keep from making payments to victims.

    • Buford

      To be clear, Moore is not a creepy, teen-chasing anomaly. Moore and his fellow Vision Forum adherents, like Doug Phillips, genuinely believe and teach that women should never be placed in positions of power and that girls aged 15-16 make the best wives.

      Remember Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson saying that 20-yo is too old for a wife, and that 15-16-yo is the better age…? This isn’t just men perving on cute teens. This is a key tenet of an organized belief system which is followed by lots of men and women in the US.

    Everything is for sale

    ” … the Republican Party was working on ways to make Pence its nominee shortly after the “Access Hollywood” tape came out, and had even started batting around the idea of drafting former Bush Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to be his running mate.

    What’s more, Coppins reports that a group of Republican donors also talked about raising money to “buy out” Trump in exchange for him dropping out of the race — but they backed off these plans when one Trump associate told them the price tag would have to be in the $800 million range. ”

  • Stogiebear

    The Pedophile Republicans come out of their closet and officially support the child molester by throwing money at him. They must really be scared that Jones is going to win that senate seat.

    • Reality.Bites

      Honestly, if any of them had a shred of insight they’d be really scared of Moore winning that seat.

      • clay

        They seem to believe that they’ve successfully contained Ted Cruz.

        • Reality.Bites

          I don’t so much mean him as a legislator. I mean him as a symbol of their party.

      • Halou

        They all voted for that stupid tax bill, when the Senate and House reconcile their to versions of it and finally pass it they’ll know their game is up. Not for the public reaction, they don’t care about that. Rather, for the fact that a $trillion-plus deficit explosion is going to cause serious problems later on, and by then they will have all “retired” from politics and resting on a nice, donor-inflated pension plan.
        Shit will roll down and onto next generation Republicans who have precious little to do with the events that have recently transpired, and of course onto the Democrats who again, as always, have to fix the Republican mess before even starting work on their own agenda..

  • Reality.Bites

    Well after all it’s been almost a month since the elections held in some states. How can they be expected to remember people are made at them because of stuff like this?

  • Karl Dubhe 2

    I see, so it’s fair to say that they really want to ban abortion, in order to force women to have more children.

    And now we know what they want the children for.

      And Alabama’s senator!

  • netxtown

    Where are the Alabama daddies with young teenage daughters in all of this? Either they don’t care – or no one is asking them the right questions.

  • JDS

    I just read where the WSJ has gone to bat for Donald Trump and wants Mueller to step down. Does Dumpy or any of his friends own the WSJ?

    • RobynWatts

      Well, the Wall Street Journal is owned by Rupert Murdoch’s NewsCorp, so they may be a little bias. /sarcasm

    • Taylor Bixler

      The op-ed page? Or the actual journalists? WSJ has actually done some pretty strong journalism this year. The oped page on the other hand…

  • ted-

    The GOP must die. Not literally if course. I’m not going to shed any tears if any of them did, however…

    • Buford

      I get your non-literal point, but I’m genuinely concerned that people are about to snap… the tension is palpable. I won’t be surprised if/when this tribalism turns deadly.

      • Clive Johnson

        I see a mixed picture–tribalism of an unprecedented degree on the right. But, something less than tribalism among non-conservatives; something more akin to a refusal to play along with extremism and policies of objective harm.

      • ted-

        As long as the “deadly” is on the GOP side, I’m alright with it at this point.

  • Buford

    I’m with Morning Joe’s Willie Geist… the big question for Mitch McConnell and the RNC is ‘What changed?’. What changed to make them switch from adamant refusals to allow Moore to join the Senate to now supporting him…!?!?

    Seriously. Make them explain what changed.

    • Taylor Bixler

      Nothing changed. It is all about having the votes to cram through their agenda. They stand for whatever their sugar daddies tell them to stand for.

  • Taylor Bixler
  • Jean-Marc in Canada
  • Ben in Oakland

    Of course they are.

  • Ya know, after a bad period in my younger days, I stopped drinking to numb the pain. But lately I’m beginning to re-think that position. I just can’t handle the daily acid drip of horribleness, the vileness of the”anything to win” mentality. Right this minute our main court is hearing arguments on allowing public business the right to deny services.
