Despite every sign that his prospective nomination is falling to pieces, possible Federal Reserve Board pick Stephen Moore maintained Thursday that he’s still “all in.”

“My biggest ally is the President,” Moore told Bloomberg. “He’s full speed ahead.”

Sen. John Thune (R-SD) told the Washington Post Wednesday that the nomination looks like a “heavy lift” and that more news on the process would be available by week’s end.

Moore has stumbled over obstacle after obstacle, including his own past sexist writings, his messy divorce and skipped alimony payments and his trouble with the IRS. Read a deep dive about Moore’s downfall here.
