2017 AL US Senate Race-Charles Barkley is backing Doug Jones over Roy Moore.

Charles Barkley, an Alabama native and Kasich supporter in the 2016 US Presidential Election is supporting Doug Jones. Barkley claims that Moore inviting Steve Bannon to campaign for Moore is a disqualifier. Will having Barkley in Alabama campaigning for Jones be helpful? He can energize the black vote and appeal to moderate Republicans.

1. Charles

 

I get the impression he is what used to be known as a moderate repub. The party is much farther right though.

2. Charles needs to do some campaigning with Doug Jones.

Voicing support is great, but he needs to go in the community with Doug Jones and remind people of what Roy Moore stands for. Even without the pedo claims, he is a horrible, racist.

I truly believe Charles may be able to get through to some of white Roy Moore supporters. Not all of course, but enough to make a difference. Please note that I am not a huge Charles Barkley, but if sincerely wants to help the cause then I'm all for it.

Lastly, I am not buying that `blacks are not energized ' bs. I feel it is a ploy to discourage black voter turnout. It's very dismissive and insulting the black community. Especially since black Alabamians are not the reason Roy Moore made it this far in the first place. Alabama you cannot allow a Roy Moore in the Senate without a fight.
