Oh Boy: Really Hinky Plan Being Talked About to Save the Alabama Senate Seat

An NRSC (National Republican Senate Committee) says the race now stands at Jones 51, Moore 39.

I know some will say the NRSC has a vested interest in pushing out a dooming poll for Moore, and I can't disagree. However, it can also be the case that they're taking shots at a ship that's already going down.

Luther Strange denies he's been approached about a convoluted, and, I gotta say, illegal-sounding gambit to delay the election apparently being talked up by some people (unidentified).

The plan would supposedly work like this--

Wait, before I get to explaining it, I have to say, if it seems like it doesn't make any sense, that's only because it doesn't make any sense.

Anyway, it would work like this if it worked, which it will not:

Luther Strange resigns from his seat early.

The governor declares the seat open and appoints another replacement Senator.

Because a replacement senator has now been appointed, the governor... then cancels the current election and declares the election to fill the seat will happen later.

I... don't think you can do this when you've already scheduled the election for the replacement to finish Jeff Sessions' term.

There's going to be presser from Alabama by Moore's people (if not Moore himself) 'later this hour." I thought it was scheduled for 4pm but I guess it's been pushed back a ways.

I assume he's going to say "I'm not going anywhere so I'm the only chance you've got."

BTW: Last night, both Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity laid into Moore for his deflections and non-denials.

I don't speak to those guys or anything. I just felt it in the air.

Oh, reportedly Steve Bannon has been asking people in his "inner circle" for their thoughts on whether these claims are true. I'm not in on that either.
