EXCERPT:

ROTHMAN: "Yeah, we shouldn’t. It’s really highly unlikely. And as Robert said, they are very afraid of their base, and their base is very much interested in sending a signal to Washington that they don’t need them. This is sort of a primal scream of anxiety about the nature of the country and the Republican Party generally. And because the Republican Party is leaderless, the top of the ticket, the president of the United States is more interested in fighting with NFL players than managing the health of his party." 
SCARBOROUGH: "And fathers." 
ROTHMAN: "And members of the NBA, and whatever, you know, he comes to in the moment. It’s -- it's up to somebody like Mitch McConnell to say, Roy Moore will never be a U.S. senator. It doesn’t matter what happens in Alabama, you will not sit in this chamber. Nobody is interested in saying that."
