Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore defeated Sen. Luther Strange in Tuesday's Senate primary runoff, overcoming heavy GOP establishment support for the incumbent, including from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and President Donald Trump himself. The hard-fought Alabama runoff battle had pitted Trump against some of his most loyal supporters including former chief strategist Steve Bannon, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and a slew of House conservatives who all backed Moore. Despite his outsider image, Moore seemed to have the edge over Strange from the start. With 92 percent of the precincts reporting, Moore led Strange by 55 percent to 45 percent, a margin of more than 41,000 votes. State officials estimated a low turnout of between 12 and 15 percent of eligible voters. Michelle Malkin, host of Michelle Malkin Investigates on CRTV, joined the Todd Starnes Show today to elaborate on the thought that Roy Moore's victory over Sen. Luther Strange is a referendum on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Michelle Malkin on Establishment Conservatives not keeping campaign promises:
Michelle Malkin: How long have the beltway establishment types promised us that 'oh well you know our hands are tied, we can't do much here, we need control of all branches of government' and you've got it, and you can't do this? And why is it that these establishment leaders had to be the the ones to narrow and constrict our choices? 'Well this is the only shot we have, this is the only shot we have.' Why? You're in power! It doesn't make any sense!
Todd Starnes: They told us 'well we have to have control of the house,' we gave them the house. And they said 'well we've gotta have the Senate too,' we gave them the Senate. 'Well we gotta have the White House,' we gave them the White House. They control everything now.
Michelle Malkin: You know it's time for Mitch McConnell to take a knee and take a hike!
