Roy Moore didnít travel to Washington on Wednesday to kiss and make up with the Republican leaders who opposed his nomination to fill the Senate seat formerly held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
He came to continue the revolt.

Moore didnít meet with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) or stop by the White House to make nice with the forces* that tried to defeat him. Instead, he huddled with Stephen K. Bannon, President Trumpís former chief strategist and one of Mooreís most outspoken advocates, and spent time in the office of a House Republican from Alabama.

While Strangeís most prominent backers promptly endorsed Moore after he won, he has shown considerably less interest in aligning with them.

There are strong hints of the company Moore plans to keep if he wins in December. On election night, he named three senators most known for taking defiant stands against GOP leaders, saying that he had spoken with each before giving his victory speech: Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Mike Lee (R-Utah) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.).

Mooreís itinerary on his first trip to Washington reflected the theme, with his Wednesday evening plans expected to include Lee and Cruz, and a private meeting planned with Paul on Capitol Hill on Thursday.
