ALABAMA: Kayla Moore Loses Local GOP Race

The Birmingham Herald reports:

Longtime State Republican Executive Committee member Sandra Lasseter fended off a challenge Tuesday from Kayla Moore, who is best known as the wife of Roy Moore, in the race for the committee’s Etowah County, Place 2 seat. Lasseter received 7,275 votes Tuesday, and Moore received 5,939 votes.

Kayla Moore vociferously defended her husband in multiple public appearances during the build-up to the December general election. She also found herself at the center of a controversy of her own in December, when she drew intense criticism for saying that “one of our attorneys is a Jew” as part of an effort to deflect claims that her husband is anti-Semitic and racist.
