Roy Moore Hits Back At Trump: He Doesn’t Control Who Votes In Alabama, The GOP Is Upset Because I’ll Win

Politico reports:

A defiant Roy Moore brushed aside Donald Trump’s warning not to run for Senate again, telling POLITICO on Wednesday that Alabama voters are capable of deciding for themselves whether he’s fit for office.

“The president doesn’t control who votes for the United States Senate in Alabama,” Moore said in a phone interview. “People in Alabama are smarter than that. They elect the senator from Alabama, not from Washington, D.C.”

Moore is convinced he could capture his party’s nomination in the face of the president’s opposition again. He said some Republicans are fearful that he still has support in the state. “They know I’ll win,” he said. “That’s why they’re upset.”
