Trump Records Robocall for AL Senate Candidate Luther Strange

Trump Records Robocall for AL Senate Candidate Luther Strange

The former U.S. attorney may give the Democrats their best shot (and it's still a long shot) at winning the first U.S. Senate election in Alabama since 1992.

A man named Walt said he's not insane about any of the candidates, but he's voting for unusual because that's who President Trump endorsed. If it proves successful for one candidate or the other, it might provide a template for insurgent campaigns in Republican primaries next year.

"Senator Luther Strange has done a great job representing the people of the Great State of Alabama", Trump tweeted last week before sending out a similar message to his followers Monday. If no candidate gets 50 percent, the race will head to a runoff on September 26 with the general election scheduled for December 12.

A woman named Kendall said she's also supporting odd because of Trump's endorsement, and also because Moore, who's leading in some polls, is "too conservative" for her. (We can assume that the rise of the extreme political right will not be an issue in the contest, unless a couple of the candidates fight for its endorsement.) Basically, it's to decide if the incumbent senator, Big Luther Strange, should be elected for a full term, and it is said by many that Big Luther-who remains the only senator whom I actually saw play basketball in college-is in a bit of trouble. Voter turnout is expected to be unusually low, said The Washington Post. In the General Election, one can vote for anyone, and write-ins will be allowed at that time.

"They are sick and exhausted of what is happening in Washington", Gerritson said. "And we're looking forward to voting and hope we have a good turnout today, because I know there's a lot of motivation out there to change Washington", Moore said.

Trump tweeted an endorsement of odd for the second time Monday morning. Mike Lee (UT), Rand Paul (KY), and Ted Cruz (TX).

Unusual was appointed to the Senate seat in February by the state's then governor.

U.S. issues stern warning against 'staggering' leaks
Trump counselor Kellyanne Conway told "Fox & Friends" that "it's easier to figure out who's leaking than the leakers may realize". Justice Department that New Mexico's largest city is a "sanctuary" for immigrants living in the country illegally.


Odd still has a strong base of support, as would be expected for an incumbent, even one who has only been in office for six months.

How much help is an endorsement from the president? In Decatur, he told supporters that his congressional district would turn out strongly and grant him an edge, outraged by the tone of Strange's campaign. "It needs to get straightened out as soon as possible". Adding further intrigue, the two front-runners include a Trump-like anti-establishment candidate who has claimed that God was responsible for putting Trump in the White House, and another who received the surprise endorsement of the president last week.

After he dismounted his horse at the polling station at a local fire department in Gallant, Ala., Moore spoke to reporters. That was actually the second time he was relieved of duty on the state supreme court; about a decade before, he was removed after a federal standoff over a monument with the Ten Commandments.

He ran again for the same office in 2010 and won.

The former Alabama attorney general is reportedly running neck-and-neck with Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore.

Moore has consistently led in the polls and the latest poll showed him ahead by eight points. He was the only candidate that the majority of Republicans approved of, and in a hypothetical runoff between him and unusual, he would win.

"He's the only one who hasn't been talking crap about the others", Wright said. A poll released Tuesday showed Moore with the highest favorability ratings of any candidate in the race. I don't care about him being put out of his position. I just don't make deals.
