McConnell vows to oppose Moore's Senate bid 'in every way' Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) signaled on Thursday that he and his allies will actively work to oppose Roy Moore's Senate bid, after the conservative firebrand jumped into the race. "He can do what he wants to, but we're certainly going to oppose him in every way," McConnell told the Associated Press shortly before Moore's announcement.
