Alabama Republican Senate candidate Judge Roy Moore may or may not win next month’s special election for the U.S. Senate, but he is at least having one big laugh at the media’s attempt to destroy him. His fund raising has gone through the roof.
Liberals have been working overtime to destroy Moore, and not just the media in Alabama, but the media from coast to coast. They’ve been trying to destroy him with one lightly sourced report after another unsubstantiated claim.
But it looks like the campaign to destroy him backfired at least in one respect. Moore’s campaign donations are now at record highs as cash streams in from supporters across the country.
Even as the number of accusers claiming he acted inappropriately with them rises, liberals and RINO Republicans have agitated for Moore to quit the race to fill the seat left vacant when former Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions resigned his seat to become President Trump’s U.S. Attorney General.
Not only has Moore denied all the accusations, but he has also insisted that he won’t be quitting the race. Moore says he is staying until the bitter end.

With all the troubles Moore is facing, one might think that he would find his campaign money drying up? But, one would be wrong.
Surprisingly, it is just the opposite. Roy Moore’s campaign coffers have been filled to overflowing with donations from individual Americans all across the country. These are donors who are sick and tired of the liberal media attack machine beating Republicans into submission with bald-faced lies, loosely sourced claims, innuendos, and vague stories.
According to the New York Post Moore’s campaign manager, Brett Doster, reported that the Roy Moore campaign has raised more cash than ever. Doster said that the campaign has received more cash over the past ten days than they had during nearly the whole of the rest of the race. That includes $500,000 in just three of the last ten days.
“Donations have been pouring in from Alabama and from all over the country in an unprecedented way,” Moore campaign manager Brett Doster told The Post on Saturday.
Moore’s campaign raised $500,000 in three days last week and ramped up its online fundraising efforts, Doster said.
The embattled Republican collected more online donations between Nov. 10 and Nov. 15 — the first six days after the scandal broke — than in the six weeks after winning the GOP nomination in a contentious September primary, Doster confirmed.
“We are confident that we will have the resources over the next three weeks to finish strong with victory,” he said.
Despite the windfall for Moore, his opponent, hardcore leftist Democrat Doug Jones, has also seen a bump in fundraising.
But there is a big difference between those who are donating money to Moore and those donating to his leftist opponent. Moore’s cash is coming from small donors — meaning regular Americans. On the other hand, Jones is getting his big support from the Washington liberal establishment.
Jones has received significant support from a list of top Democrats in Washington D.C., according to NBC News.
Sen. Chris Murphy of Connecticut raised more than $135,000 for Jones, according to an aide, while the liberal blog Daily Kos raked in nearly $138,000 for Jones since endorsing him just before the before The Washington Post published the first allegations against Moore.
Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Kamala Harris of California and Tim Kaine of Virginia, among others, also recently tapped their online donors on Jones’ behalf.
So, while Jones is being bankrolled by left-wing establishment liberals from Washington, Moore is being supported by regular Americans.
The race couldn’t be more clear. Vote for hard lefty Doug Jones and you’ll end up with an extreme liberal going to the U.S. Senate. Vote for Roy Moore and you’ll be sending a man of the people to Washington.
