Is the GOP already blackballing Roy Moore supporters?

That didn’t take long.

It was clear the GOP establishment would view the candidacy of Judge Roy Moore for Senate in Alabama’s special election – and the integrity he brings with him – as a consummate threat to their duplicitous operation. It only took them one day from Moore’s announcement to declare war on anyone who works for him.

On Thursday, Politico’s Daniel Strauss reported that the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) is treating Luther Strange, the temporary replacement for now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, appointed by the now disgraced former Gov. Robert Bentley, as an incumbent. As such, it will blackball any vendors who do consulting work for his challengers in the upcoming special primary slated for August.

From Strauss and Politico Pro: “In recent days, the GOP Senate committee has warned at least two firms, Jamestown Associates and Strategic Perception Inc., against taking on clients who are running or considering running against Strange, according to half a dozen Republican operatives and officials in Washington and Alabama.”
