Tea Party Power: Mike Lee And Rand Paul To Fundraise For Judge Roy Moore's Senate Campaign

• by Shane Trejo

Sens. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Rand Paul (R-KY) are fundraising for a candidate who makes them look like moderates by comparison: Judge Roy Moore of Alabama.

Judge Moore, best known for sticking his nose at the robed unelected lawyers of the Supreme Court while serving as chief justice of the Alabama high court, crushed his establishment-backed GOP opponent Luther Strange in a primary battle last month. He is now the favorite to defeat his Democratic opponent, Doug Jones, in a special election and become Alabama's new U.S. Senator.

"I'll stand with Rand Paul, Mike Lee and Ted Cruz on the front lines of the fight against the Washington Establishment," Moore said to his supporters in an e-mail earlier this year. His policy plan is to secure America's borders, stop liberal activist judges, repeal Obamacare and Common Core, and end free trade agreements that cripple American sovereignty.
