A modest $100 donation to Democrat Doug Jones is drawing attention in his Senate race against Roy Moore in Alabama. The reason? It's from Republican Sen. Jeff Flake, who is backing the opposite-party candidate in the crucial race. The Arizona senator tweeted an image of his check, and the Hill calls attention to the subject line of "Country over Party." It's a rebuke to the Republican National Committee and to President Trump for their recent support of Moore despite allegations of sexual misconduct. The election is a week away, and Moore is getting help Tuesday with a rally co-hosted by Steve Bannon, per (Flake isn't running for re-election, but promises that he won't go quietly.)
