Right and left tag-teaming against Moore?

Roy Moore (close-up)With the “Roy Moore for Senate Campaign,” there are three distinct groups that are determined to prevent their candidate from being a United States Senator from Alabama.

According to a recent compilation of statewide polls compiled by Real Clear Politics, Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones leads Roy Moore by two-tenths of a point.

That margin is not much, but considering how red a state Alabama is, many voters there apparently believe the claims of two women who say Moore had inappropriate contact with them nearly 40 years ago.

But after a number of witnesses stepped forward, as reported by OneNewsNow, many of the allegations against Moore do not seem to hold water.

OneNewsNow informed earlier this week how former sheriff’s deputy, Johnny Belyeu Sr., divulged that he knew Moore personally from working around the Etowah County courthouse back in the 1970s.

"I was a regular customer at Olde Hickory House, and I never once saw Judge Moore come in there," Belyeu shared, adding that he never witnessed Beverly Nelson working at the location either. "[A]nd I can't say that she even worked there."

Another witness, Renee Schivera did not remember Moore or Nelson, either.

The bleak alternative to Moore

Bill Armistead, who serves as the chairman of the Roy Moore for Senate Campaign, maintains that Jones is a far-left wing liberal – much like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren.

"And you'd never expect that someone from Alabama could be elected with those values,” Armistead insisted. “But what has happened is the national media – even the Republican establishment in Washington – is trying to destroy Judge Moore because of his strong Christian principles that he will take to Washington, and they don't want to hear anything about that."

Armistead is convinced that Mitch McConnell and other GOP leaders would rather have a Doug Jones in the Senate.

"[McConnell and like-minded GOP moderates favor Jones] even knowing that he's going to be voting against the Trump policies and agenda – as opposed to having Roy Moore –who's going to be a spokesperson for those things that Alabamians believe in … and the Word of God, which Judge always stands on,” he insisted. “[Moore] never flinches at acknowledging God in everything he does."

Armistead pointed out that Moore must overcome the Democrats, the establishment Republicans and the mainstream media in order to win December 12th.
