DEBBIE ELLIOTT, BYLINE: Good morning, David.
Moore's win is sending shockwaves through the GOP establishment - including at the White House, where President Donald Trump had poured his own political capital into helping unusual survive. He loses. What happened here? Alabama's conservative voters delivered a big punch to the GOP establishment.
Moore's campaign drew like-minded politicians from across the country. "Now the answer to what is wrong in Washington is the Republican Congress".
The race to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions has tested whether Trump's endorsement and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's allies' money can carry odd into a December matchup against Democratic nominee Doug Jones. I suppose if my guy lost to an unhinged theocrat like Roy Moore, I might do the same. So that's how he won.
Roy Moore's defeat of McConnell-backed Sen.
In 2003, Moore-then chief Justice of Alabama's Supreme Court-made national headlines for erecting a 5,280-pound monument of the 10 Commandments inside the state's judicial building, sparking a flood of lawsuits that ended with his removal from office. "Now I'm not of the opinion that it'll be enough for Jones to win yet".
ELLIOTT: Well, for one thing, that he's still behind the president's agenda.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Well, we have a man who's going to be a great senator.
"All of us who supported Judge Moore, we're going to act like we're behind", he said.
ELLIOTT: Now, the rest of his speech was more traditional Roy Moore, sounding more like a Sunday sermon than a victory lap, striking that religious tone that really works for him in Alabama. You know why? It was never passed by Congress. "And I'll be honest, I might have made a mistake".
Mr Moore now becomes the heavy favourite in Alabama's special election to be held in December against Democratic nominee Doug Jones. "Listen to the people, please", Bannon said.
The GOP now holds only a two-seat majority in the Senate, and dissent from centrist Republicans like John McCain and Lisa Murkowski have severely hindered the party's ability to pass legislation this year.
"Last night we talked about starting a revolution with Judge Moore's victory". Here's what he had to say. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., announced he will not run for re-election, and the latest iteration of Obamacare faux-repeal failed after McConnell was unable to put together a majority of Republicans willing to fulfill their seven-year campaign promises to repeal Obamacare. A recent CNN poll said that just 29% had a favorable view of the party, an all-time low, and a new Quinnipiac poll said that congressional Republicans were even less popular - with just a 15% approval rating.
"I'm at the table, I'm ready to go". "I'm very happy about that ..."
"I'm not going to go through tax reform like I just went through health care where you don't know what's in the bill, it's changing four times and I'm supposed to go defend it", said Sen.
