Senate Leadership Fund: ‘Doug Jones is delusional’
In a sarcastic statement on Wednesday, the Senate Leadership Fund (SLF) hit Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook) over his “liberal record” on the Second Amendment, border security and the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
SLF is a super-PAC aligned with Alabama native and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that exists to protect and expand the Republican majority in the United States Senate.
In their release, SLF also addressed the astounding claim made by Jones in an interview with Alabama Media Group that he did not think the Washington Post’s reporting alleging that Roy Moore had inappropriate interactions and relationships with teenage girls helped him win his current seat in the Senate.
“I don’t think it helped me,” Jones shared during the interview aggrandizing his first election anniversary.
“Doug Jones said yesterday that running against an accused pedophile didn’t help with his upset win in last December’s special election,” SLF retorted. “When you’re finished laughing, please note for the record that Senate Leadership Fund completely agrees with 2020’s most endangered U.S. Senator.”
The statement continued, “In fact, SLF encourages Jones in the strongest terms possible to continue establishing a liberal record – because that is what the people of Alabama want! Like Jones, they want their Second Amendment rights taken away. Like Jones, they oppose President Trump’s border wall. And like Jones, they oppose the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.”
“Keep on keepin’ on, Doug!” SLF concluded.
On the same day as SLF’s statement, Jones also touted his staunch support for abortion rights.
