Highway 31, which dropped more than $4.1 million in support of Jones and against Roy Moore ahead of Tuesday's Senate special election, is a joint project of two of the largest national Democratic super PACs — Senate Majority PAC and Priorities USA Action — along with a group of Alabama Democrats, multiple senior officials familiar with the arrangement told POLITICO.



The pair of Washington-based super PACs are two of the largest in Democratic politics. Priorities spent at least $190 million to try and elect Clinton in 2016, while Senate Majority spent more than $90 million in that election cycle.

Priorities USA? Just the SuperPac which set the new record for Money Spent By a PAC in the 2016 Election.

Nothing to see here, move along.

Look at the people behind Priorities USA, what a tangled web they weave.

Yeah but come on.

Bannon put all of Bretbart behind Moore, and Bannon isnt exactly a local.

I hate all of this outside money too, but both sides play that game.

Yes but they were hiding their support. Was Bannon hiding his support of Moore?

Open Secrets 2016 donors Priorities USA

I thought it was a given with Soros. All the Dem PACs and groups like Media Matters and CTR all co mingle. It's kinda weird how much they inter tangle.

No not at all.

Moore also wasn't getting a lot of establishment Republican support.

Nonetheless, big outside money and influence seems to always ingest these special elections.

Outside money is at least 4 to 1 for Jones.

And how much have you heard of Jones on national TV? Crickets compared to the Anti Moore Coverage.

Drudge, 25% turnout in AL election. My guess Moore loses. GOP finds target on foot again.

The group’s backing has remained secret until now because federal laws do not require it to disclose its donors until after the election. Jones' camp has kept its distance from the group, and no information has surfaced until now about its background.

Amen. Big money and big guns from both sides. I mean Trump endorsed him...that's the biggest conservative Gun they have.

It's getting out of hand. People talking about Soros, but the Koch brother regularly buy elections too.

Is outside influence somehow okay when it's done openly?

Doubtful turnout....AL voters are probably pissed that they have become a national punching bag they won't stay home to send a message...we will see. Moore was trending +2.2% on RealClearPolitics

At least you see it... Bannon has given time probably not much money. I'd rather see people be upfront with their support.

Koch's didn't back Trump with any real money. They (Koch) are going to spend 400 M in 2018. Both sides flood campaigns with money. It's sad I agree.

Look at the people behind Priorities USA, what a tangled web they weave.

They have to weave a tangle of lies, bribery is illegal, so they hide it behind euphemisms like campaign contributions and political action committees.

ETA: First thread I starred and flagged today, thanks for exposing their BS to the light .

Sure is okay when the left uses illegal immigrants to get out the vote and speak at their conventions.

Not only that, they share staffs, offices and they dontate and shift money between PACs and groups. It's weird when you read up on it. There is an office that has like 14 different Groups there. Their Board of directors and such are combinations of the same people.

They know how to legally abuse the campaign donation system. It's impressive and scary.

Im sure Republicans do the same, just not at the same levels the Dems do. They have taken it to an insane art form.

Like I side it's a good topic to read up on.

Ah, well I'm glad to see you're okay with it, even when the left does it. Nice to see you being even-handed for a change.

Sure looks like DBC called it.



Just under half think they are true, while more than four in 10 think they are false.


Looks like Moore will win.

Takes more than half to win.
