Trump's pedophile candidate loses Senate election

  |   Donald Trump / World News

Donald Trump's preferred candidate, Republican Roy Moore, just lost a close race for the Senate in the southern state of Alabama.

Alabama last elected a Democrat to the senate over 30 years ago. As a result, Roy Moore had been the favourite to win the race at the start.

During the campaign, Roy Moore's past returned to haunt him when many women came forward alleging that Roy Moore had dated and in some cases raped them when they were still minors (and he was a man in his 30s).

Trump and the Republican party continued to support Moore despite the allegations, Trump even tweeting earlier today encouraging Republicans in Alabama to vote Moore.

In the event, the Democrat Doug Jones appears to have edged Moore out by about 1.5%.

Tactically, this makes things harder for Trump. He has already had plenty of trouble getting his agenda passed with a 2-seat majority in the senate, now his majority is reduced to 1.
