Alabama Mad: Before Tuesday’s Alaabama Republican senatorial primary, Chamber of Commerce strategist Scott Reed said his organization had gone “all in” for incumbent Luther Strange in order to “remind [populist ex-Trump aide Stephen] Bannon who’s in charge,”

Mission Accomplished! The Chamber’s candidate lost in a 55-45 rout to Bannon’s candidate, Roy Moore, a former judge once regarded as too much of a religious zealot to make it all the way to the U.S. Senate.

Here are 5 reasons why this outcome is significant, not counting the obvious one (GOP primary voters were PO’d at what Reed boasted was the “governing wing of the party”– i.e. the GOP Establishment).

Something ‘Moore than Strange’ happened in Alabama, tonight. Donald Trump was defeated by the very folks who still love his agenda. But the rock-solid base of evangelical conservatives showed they still call their own shots.

Roy Moore is perhaps the most courageous conservative politician in America, today. He is the former Chief Justice of the state supreme court. He defied federal judges several years ago when he placed a monument to civil law in the lobby of the court. But it was a ‘Ten Commandments’ replica and the federal courts had him thrown off the courts for it.

He’s back. He just defeated Trump’s Washington machine, using Steve Bannon to orchestrate a US Senate runoff win against an incumbent opponent who spent ten times as much money. Moore led all night and ended up a 10 point winner. the general election is in a couple months. the winner assumes the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he accepted the position of US Attorney General.

If you enjoy reading Steve Bannon’s gloating, you’ll love the articles in Breitbart, tonight!
