Nebraska RNC official resigns to protest support of Moore

Nebraska Republican National Committeewoman Joyce Simmons resigned Monday in protest of the committee’s financial support for Roy Moore.

“I strongly disagree with the recent RNC financial support directed to the Alabama Republican Party for use in the Roy Moore race. There is much I could say about this situation, but I will defer to this weekend’s comments by Senator Shelby,” she wrote in an email to fellow party officials. “I will miss so many of you that I knew well; and wish I could have continued my service to the national Republican Party that I used to know well.”

On Sunday, Alabama’s senior senator, Richard Shelby told CNN that his state deserves better than Moore and that he wrote in a candidate when he cast his ballot.

Simmons declined to comment when reached by telephone on Monday morning. An RNC spokesperson did not immediately respond to a request for Continue reading “Nebraska RNC official resigns to protest support of Moore”

Trump disputes New York Times report he watches hours of TV each day

President Donald Trump on Monday disputed a New York Times report that he watches hours of cable news programming as part of his daily routine, and he bashed CNN and MSNBC for good measure.

"Another false story, this time in the Failing @nytimes, that I watch 4-8 hours of television a day — Wrong! Also, I seldom, if ever, watch CNN or MSNBC, both of which I consider Fake News," Trump tweeted.

The Times on Saturday reported that the president consumes "long spells of cable news," including the big three cable news networks — CNN, MSNBC and Fox News — to get caught up on news, to hone his message and to rev himself up for a day of political jousting.

Trump, the Times reported, often "flips to CNN for news, moves to ‘Fox & Friends’ for comfort and messaging ideas, and sometimes watches MSNBC’s ‘Morning Joe’ because, friends suspect, Continue reading “Trump disputes New York Times report he watches hours of TV each day”

Moore accuser says he’s ‘unfit’ to be a senator

A woman who claims she dated Alabama Senate candidate Roy More when she was 17 and he was 34 told NBC News that the former chief judge of the state’s Supreme Court “is unfit for public service at the Senate level in this nation.”

Debbie Wesson Gibson is among the women who spoke to The Washington Post for an article published early last month detailing allegations that Moore initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s. Gibson said her relationship with Moore was consensual and never progressed beyond kissing.

Now, though, Gibson told NBC’s “Today” show that he relationship with Moore was “not appropriate. It’s just creeper, and I did not have that sense at the time.”

In the wake of the Post report, another woman came forward alleging that Moore had sexually assaulted her when she was 16 and he was Continue reading “Moore accuser says he’s ‘unfit’ to be a senator”

Biden records robo-call for Jones

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Joe Biden is swooping back into the Alabama special Senate election on Monday with a robo-call on behalf of Democrat Doug Jones, a Democrat close to Biden told POLITICO.

In addition to recording the call that will hit Alabamian’s phones one day before they vote, the former vice president is planning to tap his large email list on behalf of the former U.S. Attorney running against Roy Moore. The call will make no mention of Moore, the person familiar with the plan said.

Biden, a potential presidential contender in 2020, is the highest-profile Democrat to appear for Jones during the race, with an October rally in Birmingham.

Since then, though, Jones’ campaign has been careful to avoid the perception that he’s getting help from the national Democratic party, which is widely reviled in the state Donald Trump won by 28 points in 2016. Biden, who is Continue reading “Biden records robo-call for Jones”
