Mobile, Ala. — It was barely more than a week ago when we thought the 2020 race for Senate in Alabama couldn’t get any weirder, but it already has — substantially so, in both major parties.
On April 30, we reported that Republicans are waiting to see if “Ten Commandments Judge” Roy Moore and “Luv Guv” Robert Bentley will join the race with ex-Auburn football coach Tommy Tuberville and Rep. Bradley Byrne. Now, the Democrats also may have a contest, with state Rep. John “you kill them now or you kill them later” Rogers threatening to challenge incumbent Sen. Doug Jones. Plus there’s another entrant on the Republican side, pushed by a Washington big-money group, along with news that Tuberville actually has been registered to vote in neighboring Florida.
Oh, and the Cheney family is involved as well.
At this rate, the Joker and the Penguin will enter the race claiming Gotham City is actually part of Alabama.
