Well, by now everyone knows the sordid stories being shared about Doug Jones competitor for the special Senate election on December 12, 2017. But Doug Jones needs to win it the good old fashioned way, with the most votes. Doesn’t matter if the republican candidate is disqualified, the numbers need to be in Doug’s column. Alabama is a crooked and wicked place politically.
Here is a blip from an article at Al.com Link to the Al.com article to read more.
What happens if Moore is withdrawn as the nominee but still receives the most votes?
Merrill said the election would be null and void. The second-place finisher would not win.
It would then fall to the governor to call another special election.
Merrill said if a significant write-in campaign is announced, his office will release information about how to cast a write-in vote.
But there might be some question about that scenario. John Bennett, spokesman for Merrill, said one interpretation of the law is that if Moore is no longer a valid candidate but receives the most votes, Jones would be declared the winner.
Bennett said the official position of the secretary of state's office is that the election would be null and void, as Merrill said.
The law is found at Code of Alabama 17-6-21.
This is how they roll in Alabama. The GOP establishment will fight tooth and nail to keep a republican in this senate seat. We cannot give them the chance to cheat and manipulate the system to keep the power in the republican column. This race in Alabama isn’t even about that anymore. It is really about decency vs. debauchery. A good man vs. a pathological liar and fool. No letting up on the gas folks. let’s floor it to victory with Doug Jones.
New Voter registration is open until November 27th. The election is December the 12th, so you still got time to register if you haven’t all ready. Here is the Alabama Sec of State website to register to vote.
Holy crap, Doug Jones is now leading Moore in newest poll!
The poll had Jones received 46 percent support in the poll to Moore's 42 percent. With a margin of error of 4 percent, however, the race is essentially a statistical tie.
The poll also had 9 percent of participants declaring themselves undecided.
The election is Dec. 12 -- one month from today.
It's the second poll since the allegations came out that reveals a loss of support for Moore. A Decision Desk HQ/Opinion Savvy poll released Friday had the race tied 46-46.
Meanwhile, three other polls conducted after The Post allegations had Moore with slight leads but all acknowledged that his chance of winning was dwindling.
I think my brain just exploded. Don’t let up people. This race is gonna be a nail biter to the end. Let’s put our shoulder to the wheel and GOTV. Keep sending postcards, making phone calls, do door to door canvassing, hang up signs, do it all.
Give Doug Jones a small donation, or volunteer. Tell your neighbor, tell your dog.
