Kellyanne Conway Urges Alabamians to Vote for Roy Moore

During an uncharacteristically tough interview on Fox & Friends, Kellyanne Conway made her case for Alabama Republican U.S. Senate candidate and accused child molester Roy Moore over his Democratic opponent Doug Jones. Pivoting from a discussion about the GOP tax bill, Conway said that Jones “will be a vote against tax cuts,” adding, “He is weak on crime. Weak on borders. He’s strong on raising your taxes. He is terrible for property owners. And Doug Jones is a doctrinaire liberal, which is why he’s not saying anything and why the media are trying to boost him.” When co-host Brian Kilmeade asked if that meant she is telling people to vote for Moore, Conway paused before saying, “I’m telling you that we want the votes in the Senate to get this tax bill through.” She then proceeded to level attacks against Democratic Senators Al Franken and Bob Menendez. When the hosts reminded Conway that the RNC, the Young Republican Federation of Alabama, and “a lot of women” as Ainsley Earhardt put it, have pulled their support from Moore, she said, “Right. And you know what? I just want everybody to know Doug Jones—nobody ever says his name and they pretend he is some kind of conservative Democrat in Alabama. And he’s not.” Conway said President Trump has no plans to campaign for Moore in Alabama ahead of next month's special election.
