Doug Jones Mocks Moore: I Use Guns For Hunting, ‘Not Prancing Around on Stage in a Cowboy Suit’
We are now just a week out from the highly anticipated Alabama Senate special election between embattled GOP candidate Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones. Republicans in Washington have softened their stance on Moore in recent days as President Donald Trump has officialy endorsed the accused child molester and the RNC has reinvested in the race.
With polls showing an extremely tight race — Real Clear Politics shows Moore up by just 1.5 points — Jones hit the campaign trail today and tore into his opponent, likely hitting him where it hurt.
Regarding the allegations that Moore sexually abused teenage girls when he was in his 30s, Jones had the following to say: “I damn sure believe that I have done my part to ensure that men who hurt little girls should go to jail and not the United States Senate.”
He also mocked the ex-judge for his campaign event appearance earlier this year in which Moore pulled out a tiny pistol while wearing a cowboy hat and vest.
“When you see me with a gun, I’ll be climbing in and out of a duck blind,” Jones told the crowd, noting his support for the 2nd Amendment. “Not prancing around on a stage in a cowboy suit.”
Damn, Doug! You can drag someone with the best of them!
