Every Wednesday, Indelegate delivers the important and funny political news that you should at least pretend to have read. This week: Roy Moore is probably going to the Senate, and maybe Peyton Manning will, too.
- As always, we begin by shilling for our Facebook and Twitter pages.
- Down in Alabama, Roy Moore won the GOP nomination for the Senate seat Jeff Sessions vacated. Moore beat Trump-backed interim Senator Luther Strange (real name). This being Alabama, Moore is a mortal lock to win in December’s special election.
- More on Moore: he thinks that Sharia law is in place somewhere “in Illinois, Indiana – up there,” and his victory caused the President to delete a bunch of tweets.
- While in Alabama supporting Strange, President Donald Trump picked a fight with black NFL players who protest the flag. That led to a wild weekend of booing, kneeling, standing, and explaining in America’s most popular sports league.
- Huge portions of Puerto Rico are still without power or clean water following Hurricane Maria as FEMA works to help victims.
- Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) is retiring. Wouldn’t it be dope if Peyton Manning ran for his seat?
- There was no vote on the GOP’s Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill.
