Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is using a contentious special election scheduled for next month in Alabama to fundraise for her own 2018 re-election.
 
In an e-mail sent to her supporters last night, Warren accused the Republican candidate in the race, former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, of being “a disgrace to his party, his state, and our country,” adding that he “proudly touts a record ridden with homophobia, racism and bigotry.” She praised Democratic candidate Doug Jones, a former U.S. Attorney, crediting him with reopening “the case of the 1963 church bombing in Birmingham that killed four little girls” and prosecuting “two KKK members responsible for their murders.”
 
Warren’s e-mail encouraged her followers to “send a message that there is no place for Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate,” including a link asking people to “join us and chip in to help Doug Jones beat Roy Moore in December.” However, the link took readers to a donation page that would divide financial contributions between the Jones campaign and Warren’s own re-election bid—even though the email made no mention that Warren was seeking financial support.
 
It is uncertain how much money Warren has raised since the e-mail was sent last night.
