Moore defeats unusual to win GOP nomination in US Senate race

Moore defeats unusual to win GOP nomination in US Senate race

"Luther Strange started way back & ran a good race".

'ALABAMA, get out and vote for Luther Strange - he has proven to me that he will never let you down!' another read. For instance, Ben Carson - the conservative Department of Housing and Urban Development secretary - allowed Moore's campaign to release a statement praising the former judge hours before Mr. Trump took the stage to hold a rally for unusual in Huntsville, Alabama on Friday. Trump wrote at the time. They see Moore, the ousted chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and a bombastic voice of right-wing conservatism, as a more Trumpian candidate.

After his victory was declared on Tuesday, Moore retweeted the picture of the 5200-pound statue of ten commandments brought to his victory party. However, the president reportedly mused at the rally about whether he had made a "mistake" by backing odd and committed to campaigning "like hell" for Moore if he won. Sam Nunberg, a former Trump campaign aide, blamed presidential son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner for the endorsement, telling TheDC it was a "shameful" move by Kushner. The president supported odd, who lost. He previously served as an Alabama Supreme Court justice.

President Trump was in Alabama last Friday night to ramp support for the Luther Strange, but that presidential support didn't have much impact to push the former Alabama Attorney General ahead of Moore.

Judge Roy Moore showed off his revolver during a campaign rally on election day in Alabama.

And they did. At around 8 p.m. with 13% of precincts reporting, Moore led unusual by 17 points.

It also signals that many in the grassroots conservative movement that helped propel Mr Trump to the White House are still fighting against the party leadership and its grip on Washington politics during a turbulent period in which Republicans have struggled to deliver on key campaign promises like health care reform. "The best thing we can do is put it in the hands of the Almighty", Moore said. "Vote Luther on Tuesday", the President had tweeted earlier. "Your neighbors come out and to meet people who live on your street who you haven't met before and everyone is in a great mood and excited about participating, so there's a positive feeling at the polls", said Cory Unruh, Chief Inspector at the Dean Rd. "They're going to say, 'Donald Trump, the president of the United States, was unable to pull his candidate across the line". I encourage all Alabamians to vote in the general election scheduled for December 12, 2017.
