Conway on Roy Moore: A Vote for Doug Jones in Alabama Is a Vote Against Tax Cuts
Kellyanne Conway warned Alabama voters this morning that a vote for Democrat Doug Jones in the special U.S. Senate election would be a vote against tax cuts.
The White House counselor stopped short, however, of offering explicit support for Republican Roy Moore, who is facing several allegations of sexual misconduct, including pursuing a relationship with a 14-year-old girl when he was in his 30s.
Moore has denied the allegations and resisted calls for him to end his campaign.
"Folks, don't be fooled. [Doug Jones] will be a vote against tax cuts," said Conway in a "Fox & Friends" interview.
"So vote [for] Roy Moore?" Brian Kilmeade asked in response.
Conway answered that the White House "wants the votes" to pass tax reform, which now faces a close vote in the Senate. She questioned why Democrats have not called on Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) to resign after the allegations of sexual harassment against him last week.
Republican Senators are working very hard to get Tax Cuts and Tax Reform approved. Hopefully it will not be long and they do not want to disappoint the American public!

Kilmeade noted that Moore has lost support among most Republicans and from the RNC.
Conway answered that she wants voters to know that Jones, a former U.S. attorney in Alabama, is a "doctrinaire liberal" and not a "conservative Democrat" as some in the media have claimed.
She said there is "no plan" for Trump to go to Alabama to campaign for Moore before the Dec. 12 election.
