Liz Pike’s take on the Roy Moore’s victory in Alabama

Earlier this week, Roy Moore, former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, prevailed in the special Republican primary for U.S. Senate over incumbent Sen. Luther Strange, who had the backing of much of his party’s establishment.

Moore is a controversial figure who was twice removed from the state Supreme Court. His victory has been the cause of much internet pondering and hot takes over what it means for the future of the Republican Party.

One of those hot takes came from Clark County. On Wednesday, state Rep. Liz Pike, a Camas Republican who is running for county chair, took to Facebook:

Judge Moore was outspent 10 to 1 and still won by 10 points in last night’s Alabama US Senate Primary. A day of reckoning is coming to establishment politicians and the “corporatist” elites. People win over politics and money every time!

In other news, in the election for Clark County council chair, which won’t take place for over a year,

Pike has raised over $20,000 for her campaign, presumably none from “corporatist” elites. Her sole opponent, current council Chair Marc Boldt hasn’t raised any money.
