Kevin McCarthy On Roy Moore Winning In Alabama: “I Celebrate When A Republican Wins An Election.” KILMEADE: Are you concerned at all when Judge Moore wins that Senate run off they say he is more populist than a traditional conservative?  Do you think the republicans are going to be fighting within themselves come midterms in a year?

Mark Meadows On Roy Moore: “He’ll Make A Good Senator.” “He’ll make a good senator. I do believe that he’ll win in December and ultimately the people of Alabama will have a voice here on Capitol Hill. We need to turn Capitol Hill back to its rightful owner and that’s we the people.” [MSNBC: Morning Joe, 9/28/17]

Mike Lee On Endorsing Roy Moore, “I Do Agree With Roy Moore, Some Of The Critical Constitutional Issues” “Well look everybody comes to the Senate with their own agenda, their own interests. Judge Moore is someone who very much wants to drain the swamp, wants to shake things up in Washington. I don’t agree with him on every single issue but I do agree with Judge Moore, some of the critical constitutional issues. The need to restore federalism and separation of powers. The need to return to an era in which we respect the power of the sovereign states, and we don’t assume that every decision is a government decision and every government decision has to be made in Washington. I respect that about Judge Moore and I think he has a lot to offer in terms of restoring that constitutional conversation.” [Fox News: Fox & Friends, 10/31/17]
