But that's the problem

If you make the war between "establishment" and "whatever the hell you call Bannon" worse, you increase the chance that those primary challenges will be successful, and where they aren't that the Bannon side won't turn out in the general. That means McConnell gets fewer steady establishments types, eroding his power, and/or fewer Republicans as fringe candidates struggle in genuinely competitive places, eroding his power.

It is absolutely not in McConnel's interest to wage that war. They'll seat Moore, and hope they can control him. See the response to Trump, Donald J. I don't think they see any other option.
