I don't know TOO much about this, but Governor Ivey of Alabama is resisting her own party's attempts to delay the December 12 special election. Thoughts?

It's not like it'll change the ultimate outcome. We need to stop kid ourselves on that one.

All it takes to be awesome is to not cancel an election her party is going to lose?

I saw this title thread and thought that she persuaded Strange to quit and appointed Sessions.  I guess that wouldn't stop the special election, though.

If the best thing you can say about someone is that they didn't abolish democracy, then they're not especially awesome.

She's still better than most GOP Governors and Alabama politicians.

That's why I called her 'awesome', she breaks the stereotype of modern GOP politicians.

Legally there would be no standing to alter the date of the election and any change would be thrown out in court. Ivey is running for Governor, so she really doesn't want to engage in tricks that could come back to harm her in the primary.

That funny. Moore probably won't vote for any SCOTUS nominees because they don't respect the Ten Commandments and the Bible enough.

She's not a party hack and she's fiercely ethical. After the Bentley debacle, I'm sure she is working her ass off to make sure she has a clean and successful tenure as governor.

I mean did you not see that she's supporting Roy Moore because muh Supreme Court? I agree she is about the best we can get in Alabama, but she is in no way a good politician because she's not tearing up the Constitution or frauding the state based on an affair.

Its over. Calling it now: rain has destroyed Northam in northern virginia, and also the competitive HOD races.  Gillespie wins by 2-3 points, and a very slight or none at all net gain for Democrats in the house.

The reason why I said she isn't a political hack is because she isn't openly endorsing Roy Moore. That's because she believes a governor should not take sides. She's also refusing to push back the December election, and i'm sure Mitch McConnell is constantly contacting her, begging her to do so.

Could you imagine Roy Moore himself on the U.S. Supreme Court? If Santorum had won in 2012 or Huckabee 2008 we might've seen that.
