Urban dubbed Moore an “anchor around the Republican brand” and a “disaster for the midterms.”
“Republicans will have to distance themselves,” he added. “When you’re explaining, you’re losing. So I think this is a loser for the Republican Party.”
Urban said he thinks the issue could have been solved by postponing the election altogether, but reiterated that he would prefer to see Jones elected over Moore.
“In the long run, Democrat Doug Jones will become Republican Doug Jones,” he said, adding that the candidate could easily become a “likely vote for Republicans” on various issues.
