Ron Johnson hopes Alabama has taught Steve Bannon a lesson

NATION-NOW     Steve Bannon is a cancer on the GOP and Roy Moore's loss won't stop him     
       Steve Bannon is a cancer on the Republican Party

King argued that the Alabama election is proof that people are rejecting Bannon and his candidates.

"When it comes to Alabama politics Steve Bannon should have followed President @realDonaldTrump lead in supporting Luther Strange", Sen.

Rep. King called on Moore to drop out of the race more than a month ago after sexual assault allegations were reported by The Washington Post.

Bannon, President Donald Trump's former chief political strategist and right-wing firebrand, backed Roy Moore during his unsuccessful bid for a Senate seat in Alabama. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on Twitter, referring to the interim senator whom Moore defeated with Bannon's backing in a September primary runoff.

"This is a brutal reminder that candidate quality matters regardless of where you are running", Senate Leadership Fund President and CEO Steven Law said in a statement early Wednesday after Moore's loss.

Netflix Fires Executive For "Careless" Remarks On Danny Masterson Allegations
Netflix later confirmed the comments, calling them "careless, uninformed and do not represent the views of the company". He will still appear in the second half of season two, which is due to be released on the streaming service on Friday.

The point: Bannon walked Trump into a trap.

On "Breitbart News Radio" on SiriusXM's Patriot Channel on Wednesday, Bannon credited the Democratic National Committee for getting involved in the Alabama Senate race and boosting the fortunes of Doug Jones.

Bannon is waging war on the Republican wing of the party led by McConnell, left, while defending conservative points of Trump's agenda.

He concluded: "Last night's election was a revulsion by the American people". Mr. Moore denied these claims of misconduct, but many Republicans abandoned him, saying they found the allegations credible.

Because Trump and Bannon supported Moore actively, it is likely Democrats will try to use Moore as a symbol of the GOP's values even though he lost to Jones. If anything, Tuesday's results seem to have convinced him it's time to re-arm for the next battle.
