Lee Busby, a retired Marine and former White House aide to the Chief of Staff, Johns Kelly, has thrown his hat into the rink in Alabama. Busby has shamelessly stepped in as a self-proclaimed ‘write-in candidate’ to sponge off of Judge Roy Moore’s voters.
Busby is a ‘never Trump’ candidate who suspiciously attended a Liberal fundraiser for Democrat- Doug Jones. Do you still think the desperate Liberals aren’t clamoring to slant the elections? You won’t after reading this.
Busby, a retired Marine colonel and former aide to White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, announced on Monday that he will launch a last-minute write-in campaign against Republican nominee Alabama Judge Roy Moore and Democrat Doug Jones.
Busby admitted that he attended a fundraiser for Doug Jones and even voted for Ohio governor and infamous public eater John Kasich in 2016 Republican presidential primary.
Lee Busby argued that the allegations of sexual misconduct against Roy Moore created an opening for an establishment, a centrist candidate to launch a third-party run for the December 12 Alabama Senate race.
Busby said, “I think you can flip this thing. If this were a military operation, the left flank and the right flank are heavily guarded. I think that gives you an opportunity to run straight up the middle.”
Busby’s write-in campaign mirrors Evan McMullin’s third-party bid in the 2016 presidential election. McMullin, nicknamed “McMuffin” by Trump supporters, admitted during the presidential election that if he could not stop Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump from being elected president, he would be “happy” just stopping Trump from becoming the 45th president.
McMullin, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) operations officer and Goldman Sachs employee, announced a “Never-Trump” candidacy to upset the election in favor of Hillary Clinton by appealing to Mormon voters in Utah, Arizona, and Idaho.
