Alabama Senate: Trump Card Doesn't Work

Sen. Luther Strange the Republican selected to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions vacated Senate seat is the establishment GOP's pick in the special election run-off

Roy Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court who was removed from office for his display of a Ten Commandments statue, defeated incumbent Sen.

Even before Strange's loss on Tuesday, Trump expressed misgivings about getting behind the candidate, who he deemed too "low energy".

Odd also thanked Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for backing him. He also said he supports the president and his agenda.

His concerns were only exacerbated by the endorsement of Moore by his former chief strategist Steve Bannon, who made a highly visible push for Moore as the anti-GOP-establishment candidate.

"I don't like Roy Moore". Sounds like a really great guy who ran a fantastic race. Bannon took the stage to introduce Moore as supporters waving flags cheered Tuesday night.

With Bannonite populists already targeting Republican incumbents in Senate seats in Nevada, Arizona and MS, the question is: did these unique local factors dominate the race, or can Republican primaries now be successfully nationalized in opposition to Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell?

A super PAC affiliated with McConnell spent millions in vain trying to defeat Moore.

As many as 22,000 people were at the concert. "It sounded like fireworks". "People were standing around, then they hit the floor". A SWAT team blew open the entry to the 32nd-floor room of the hotel with an explosive and found him dead, police said.

Most voters polled said they were not influenced by Trump, and those that did were equally likely to say it pushed them toward Moore as unusual - perhaps because of Trump off-hand comment at the Huntsville rally last Friday to back odd that he "might have made a mistake" in supporting him. At least six GOP senators either opposed the legislation or expressed grave doubts about it. The president tweeted out his support for Moore shortly after the race was called.

The General election is scheduled for December 12.

Could there a be glimmer of hope in the eyes of Alabama democrats? One Bannon ally joked to the Guardian on Tuesday night that "Mitch McConnell in a Republican primary is now what Nancy Pelosi is in general elections for Democrats". "I'm running against Luther Strange'". Roy, WIN in Dec! Some questioned the value of Trump's support after the campaign speech he gave for unusual last an hour and a half, went off-topic, and even included the president questioning whether it was wise for him to be there. Probably 80 percent of the Republicans who voted strongly support Trump. He has described Islam as a "false religion" and suggested the state remove children from the homes of same-sex parents. We can support the President.

"They're exhausted of business-as-usual, of not getting things done so they're willing to take on a nontraditional candidate to hopefully get that done", the North Carolina Republican said. Trump seems to think that his support base is so loyal to him that it will follow him anywhere.

There are three big reasons why Roy Moore's defeat of President Donald Trump-endorsed Senator Luther Strange in the Alabama Republican primary on Tuesday matters. Luther Strange, pulled the gun in an effort to convince voters he believes in the Second Amendment.

In a fundraising email this month, Moore pledged to "NEVER back down or compromise on our deeply held values and principles". "This is total embarrassment.'" - Trump said to the crowd.

If Moore wins in December, he may try to relitigate issues the GOP would rather not discuss. He does not respect the authority of the U.S. Supreme Court to interpret the Constitution, and the federal courts to enforce civil rights laws.
