Can the Republicans claim any high ground – or separation from the president -- after the party decided to support Roy Moore? A roundup of editorials Thursday takes a look at the issue.
Opinions from the left:
From nj.com: How is there a place for Roy Moore in the Senate if he got kicked out of an Alabama mall?
The Alabama Senate race between #RoyMoore & #DougJones is, in very large part, a decision by Republicans about who they are. It's also about what Christians think the word "Christian" means.— EJ Dionne (@EJDionne) December 7, 2017
From U.S. News and World Report: Why would the GOP choose to support a man with such allegations against him? Because they need his vote, that’s why.
From The Baltimore Sun: It’s clear that Republicans are all-in with President Donald Trump and his values.
