As the Repubs line up for the cameras, to blame someone else for the Jones win. Priceless!

If they undercut Bannon, or escalate the war with him, that's fine with me.

Moore keeps saying "We have to remember it's in God's hands".

At first I got really really mad whenever I read that.

And then I realized... "Maybe he's right, would any Just God have let Roy Moore win?"

So they have nobody to blame but God here.

I would agree, his attempts to wash the party of the 'establishment' Republicans may very well work to propel Dems to offices. Keep up the good work Steve!!

No.

The sooner Bannon and his ilk fail the better. Win or lose they continue the radicalization of a segment of the US, and ask many countries what happens when a radicalized minority falls from power.

Instead, some of McConnell's chief advisers used the results to skewer Bannon, who has openly advocated for primary challenges to incumbent Republicans who he says are blocking Trump's agenda.

"Before we get the results, I'd just like to thank Steve Bannon for showing us how to lose the reddest state in the union and Governor [Kay] Ivey for the opportunity to make this national embarrassment a reality," Josh Holmes, a former McConnell chief of staff, said in a tweet.

The Senate Leadership Fund used the loss to try to drive a wedge between Bannon and his patron, Trump.


"This is a brutal reminder that candidate quality matters regardless of where you are running," Senate Leadership Fund CEO Steven Law, the former McConnell chief of staff, said in a statement. "Not only did Steve Bannon cost us a critical Senate seat in one of the most Republican states in the country, but he also dragged the President of the United States into his fiasco."
