Malkin: Roy Moore's Victory Is a Referendum on 'Swamp King' Mitch McConnell
She noted that McConnell and much of the Republican Party establishment supported incumbent Sen. Luther Strange in the race for the seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, dumping millions of dollars into a race for what was already a safe seat.
She pointed out that Strange, the former attorney general in Alabama, was appointed by then-Gov. Robert Bentley, who has since resigned in disgrace. She said it was an apparent "quid pro quo" for Bentley to name Strange to the seat, so he could install someone who might be more sympathetic to allegations that Bentley violated ethics and campaign finance laws.
"This was about rejecting business as usual. And the fact is that McConnell directed and misdirected all of these funds that should have gone to races where Republicans could be challenging Democrats," Malkin said.
She said Moore's victory is a referendum on McConnell and the GOP establishment's "misplaced priorities."
Abby Huntsman noted that President Donald Trump also backed Strange, despite the fact that Moore was the outsider, anti-establishment candidate who better represented Trump's brand.
"I hope and I'm sure that President Trump will see that," Malkin said, adding that this should send a message to incumbent Republicans who are facing outsider challengers.
She said that message should be that they were sent to Washington not to get perpetually reelected, but to represent the conservative, limited-government agenda that they were sent there to push.
