Alabama Senate Race a Tough One for Trump's Favorite

Primary elections for the Senate seat are being held today, with polls open until 7 p.m. However, Brooks also had been no fan of Trump early in the primary, and although he was trying to run close to the president now, the attack ads against him revived his hits against Trump back from the 2016 campaign. "I consider it a biblical miracle that he's there".

Strange's opponents have, surprisingly, said little about the issue. "I believe he sent Donald Trump in there to do what Donald Trump can do". But, given Trump's outsider stance and his current rift with McConnell over last month's failed vote to repeal and replace Obamacare, the president's leap into the race to endorse odd came as a major shock. "He has my complete and total endorsement!". McConnell's super PAC has spent at least $8 million on his candidacy, and the majority leader has threatened to cut Republican consultants off from the party funding if they support Strange's primary challengers. Luther Strange for U.S. Senate over "Ten Commandments Judge" Roy Moore.

If none of the nine candidates garner more than 50 percent of the vote, the top two contenders will head to a September 26 runoff. Luther Strange and former State Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore. "Too many people died for us to have the right to vote".

Moore has been a highly controversial figure in Alabama for over a decade.

"You could say that about America, couldn't you?" he said. "It needs to quit being an us versus them thing". "God has taken us, step by step, to the advertising we've gotten in this campaign", Moore said. Luther Strange in Tuesday's three-way primary here.

"His most likely opponent in a two-man race is unusual, a hulking 6'9" former college basketball player who reached the Senate under controversial circumstances. Robert Bentley, who later resigned in disgrace after a sex scandal. Odd has occupied the seat since being appointed in February by then-Gov. Brooks spent Friday campaigning in Baldwin and suggested Pittman voters "coalesce" around Brooks to keep odd out of the runoff, which Pittman's campaign rejected. Brooks, a congressman and member of the far-right House Freedom Caucus, has about about 17 percent, according to RealClearPolitics. In contrast, unusual has been a steadfastly loyal vote for McConnell since joining the Senate. Two days later, he called for the majority leader to step down. "And Trump, he fired me up by saying that in his rallies", Walt said.

Unusual said that if elected, he wants to find "commonsense solutions" for the problems that are affecting people in their "real lives", just like Trump wants to do.

While Strange is boosted by Trump, he could be dragged down by accusations of ties to the so-called swamp.

"If Mitch McConnell is accusing me of being a "conservative rebel" who won't march in lockstep behind his Big Government, big-spending agenda, then I plead guilty as charged!"

President Trump: The president has to be disappointed that he did not have enough clout in Alabama, where he won by 28 points in November, to propel his chosen candidate to the Republican nomination on Tuesday - or even to first place. Jones also picked up a key endorsement from the Alabama Democratic Conference, which could mount a get-out-the-vote effort for him. I wanted his agenda passed.

On the Democratic side, Robert Kennedy a top contender despite having no prior political experience.

While Alabama has not elected a Democrat to the Senate this century, former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones, known in the state for prosecuting cold cases from Civil Rights era church bombings in Birmingham, has earned the endorsement of Vice President Joe Biden, but in a state that Trump won by 30-percentage points past year, is seen as a longshot candidate.
