Judge Roy Moore used the long reach of Breitbart to make a fundraising pitch to conservatives in the run-up to the Dec. 12 special election in Alabama, saying, "I've been abandoned by Washington's establishment Republicans."
In a "Special Message" email from Breitbart News with the subject line, "McConnell's dirty plot to destroy me," Moore is aiming to reach a goal of $500,000.
"I must be able to count on the support of God-fearing conservatives like you to help me defeat the forces of evil seeking to crush out and destroy our conservative movement — starting with me on Dec. 12," the fundraising email reads.
In what should have been a slam-dunk win for Moore in dead-red Alabama to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, it's basically now a "pick'em" between the conservative and Democrat Doug Jones; RealClearPolitics has Moore with a lead of 0.8 in its composite average of all polls.
"Apparently, Mitch McConnell and the establishment GOP would rather elect a radical pro-abortion Democrat than a conservative Christian as the next U.S. Senator from Alabama," the email pitch reads.
The email also slams Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham, though even Sessions said earlier this week he has "no reason to doubt" the claims of the now eight named women who have come forward to detail their story of sexual misconduct against Moore.
House Speaker Paul Ryan also has said Moore should step aside.
Both the Republican National Committee and the National Republican Congressional Committee have cut off fundraising for Moore.
"I need your support right now more than ever," the email concludes.
