Republican Senate hopeful’s campaign bus had a typo and his opponent had an incredible response

The campaign bus of a homophobic Republican Senate hopeful has a typo on it, and his opponent has seized the opportunity incredible.

Roy Moore is currently running for Senate in Alabama.

The disgraced judge is notoriously homophobic, having previously said that gay sex should be illegal.

As he launched his campaign, Moore decked out his campaign bus with an all-American theme that embodies the “Make America Great Again” phrase coined by Trump.

However, Moore failed to proof-read the decals before they were printed, leading to an unfortunate typo.

The bus reads AlabamaDerservesMoore.com, adding an extra r to the actual website: AlabamaDeservesMoore.com.

However, Moore’s opponent has capitalised off the colossal mistake by snapping up the misspelt domain in order to redirect it to his own campaign site, DougJonesForSenate.com.

The campaign for Moore confirmed that the Great American Alliance was in charge of ordering the wrap for the bus, not Moore or his immediate team.

The typo has since been corrected but we can’t help but applaud Jones’ quick thinking.

The seat opened up after Attorney General Jeff Sessions was appointed to his role.

Since beginning his campaign, Moore has been connected to extremist pastor Kevin Swanson who has called for gay people to be put to death.

Swanson preaches that gay people should be stoned to death.

Moore previously appeared on Swanson’s radio show.

GOP officials have been embarrassed over ties to Swanson in the past, with Senator Ted Cruz forced to apologise last year for appearing at an event run by him.

However, Moore’s association with him is much more long-standing, having appeared at least five times on Swanson’s show.

In one interview in 2015, Moore refused to say if he supports putting gay people to death.

Moore is most famous for being ejected from his role as Alabama’s Chief Justice, after abusing his authority in a bid to block gay weddings in the state.

He issued a string of orders declaring the US Supreme Court ruling on equal marriage “doesn’t apply” in Alabama due to state anti-gay laws, and ordered probate judges to enforce a gay marriage ban.
