Alabama’s Sen. Shelby: “I Couldn’t Vote For Roy Moore”

Well, this will be awkward.

Sen. Richard Shelby told CNN’s Jake Tapper today, “I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore.”

“I’d rather see a Republican win, but I hope that Republican will be a write-in,” Shelby said this morning on CNN’s State of the Union. “I think a lot of people could do that. Will they do that? I’m not sure.” “I couldn’t vote for Roy Moore,” he said. “The state of Alabama deserves better.”

According to Shelby, he voted for an unnamed “distinguished Republican candidate.”
