BAKER BACKING DEMOCRAT JONES IN ALABAMA SENATE RACE

By Andy Metzger
STATE HOUSE NEWS SERVICE

BOSTON, DEC. 11, 2017....Gov. Charlie Baker supports the Democrat running for U.S. Senate in Alabama against Roy Moore, the controversial Republican who has been dogged by multiple accounts that he made sexual advances towards teenage women well into his adult years.

The Republican governor reiterated his belief Monday that Moore is unfit for the office and noted that Doug Jones, a Democrat, is the only alternative on the ballot in Tuesday's contest.

"I certainly don't want to see Roy Moore win. That means, obviously, that I would be supporting the alternative," said Baker, when asked if he supports Jones. Baker blanked his presidential ballot last year after expressing reservations with both candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Although the Republican National Committee has resumed its support for Moore who received an endorsement from President Donald Trump, Baker does not plan to end his participation in a joint fundraising effort between the MassGOP and national Republican Party that sends 40 percent of contributions raised by the governor for MassVictory to the RNC, according to the Boston Globe.
