(Newser) – A hiccup for Roy Moore's Alabama Senate campaign: communications director John Rogers has resigned, reports Reuters, which quotes the campaign's chair as saying Wednesday, "Campaigns make changes throughout the duration of the campaign. John made the decision to leave the campaign last Friday—any representations to the contrary are false—and we wish him well." In terms of one representation to the contrary, Dan Gallo of Fox News tweeted a quote from Moore campaign adviser Brett Doster: "Unfortunately John just did not have the experience to deal with the press the last couple of weeks, and we've had to make a change." More developments:

  • A political action committee that's backing Moore is trumpeting comments President Trump made Tuesday about the candidate. The AP describes it as a Thanksgiving-themed email with the subject line "Giving thanks for YOU and OUR PRESIDENT!" Trump didn't explicitly endorse the embattled candidate, but he seemed to come pretty close, saying, "We don't need a liberal person in there, a Democrat." "We are thankful that his last words before leaving the White House to celebrate Thanksgiving were the strong words of support for Roy Moore," reads the email from the group Solution Fund PAC.
