Tuesday in Birmingham, AL, Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Doug Jones mocked Republican candidate Roy Moore for showing his pistol at a campaign event last September.
Jones said, “Despite what you hear in his TV ads folks Roy Moore has never ever served our state with honor. He has never ever been a source of pride for the people of this state, only a source of embarrassment.”
He continued, “I don’t demean my fellow citizens but treat everyone with dignity and respect. Despite the silly name calling my record as a prosecutor speaks for itself. I’m a supporter of the Second Amendment. When you see me with a gun, folks, I’ll be climbing in and out of a deer stand or a turkey blind, not prancing around on a stage in a cowboy suit.”
He added, “I believe women are every bit as capable as men, that they deserve to be elected to public office. I believe they deserve equal pay for equal work. And I damn sure believe that I have done my part to ensure that men who hurt little girls should go to jail, and not the United States Senate.”
