After today's election in Alabama, junior senator Luther Strange and the state's Chief Justice Roy Moore are headed to a Republican primary runoff. A former Alabama Attorney General, Strange received President Trump's endorsement and millions of dollars in support from a Senate PAC aligned with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
In 2003, he was removed from office after refusing to take down the Ten Commandments monument he had installed on the grounds of the state judicial building.
"The attempt by the silk-stocking Washington elitists to control the vote of the people of Alabama has failed", Moore said in his victory speechreported by The Birmingham News.
Despite renewed efforts by Mr. Trump and Mr. McConnell, Mr. Moore's prospects in the September runoff look good: He likely will inherit most of the 20 percent who supported hard-line conservative, third-place finisher Mo Brooks - who was relentlessly attacked by Mr. The victor will face Democratic nominee Doug Jones in a general election on December 12. But his tenure was short-lived again: in 2016, Moore was suspended as chief justice after he directed probate judges not to issue marriage certificates to gay couples.
Trump tweeted congratulations Wednesday to both Moore and unusual "for being the final two". With 96.99 percent of the 32 precincts in St. Clair County reporting, Doug Jones was the definitive victor in the Democratic primary, with over 70 percent of the votes.
Regardless of the merits of that statement, the fact that this serious, experienced, and well-spoken conservative finished a distant third in a bright red state should help answer the question constantly being posed by the media: do Trump voters still support the president? "Luther Strange of the Great State of Alabama has my endorsement".
