"Basically, Alabama is behind other states in switching to Republican because (George) Wallace stayed around so long," political science professor Shannon Bridgmon said.

And the GOP is cashing in on that, drawing comparisons to "Pelosi Democrats" locally, Bridgmon said.
Bridgmon describes the "top-down" transition from Democrat to Republican in Alabama.
Bridgmon said in the 1970s Republicans started heavily targeting every available office. Democrats weren't prepared to fight back, she said.

"Each election cycle, Republicans will increase for the foreseeable future as older, traditional Democrats exit and young people enter the electorate socialized as Republicans," said Shannon Bridgmon, assistant professor of political science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Bridgmon said Moore has performed poorly in races for higher offices, but evangelical voters may find him to be a comfort in the judiciary.
" 'Liberal' is a catch-all pejorative that members of our political culture, regardless of party, can employ to describe a candidate we don't identify with," Bridgmon said.
