Backed Luther Strange Limps Toward Finish Line In Alabama Senate Runoff

  • President Trump to come to Huntsville Saturday to support Luther Strange for Senate

In his speech, Moore referenced the U.S. Civil War while lamenting the current divisions within the country.

Strange, who has showcased the support of the president since the primary, will also get support from Vice President Mike Pence who Politico reports will come to Alabama sometime Monday.

Trump reaffirmed his support for odd in a tweet over the weekend.

During a July healthcare roundtable with Republican senators, Trump suggested that Heller would eventually vote for the Senate's bill and joked on camera, "Look, he wants to remain a senator, doesn't he?"

By wading into the race beyond just supportive tweets, Trump now ups the stakes for himself too, and a loss by his chosen candidate may mean he won't be as willing next time to go against much of his core base and vocal supporters who have lined up behind Moore.

Shelby says Luther Strange..."not only understands the complex issues facing our nation, but he is also poised to help continue Alabama's growth and economic development". Some establishment Republicans say they're also anxious Moore would embolden other conservative challengers in primaries, putting McConnell's hold on his caucus in even more peril. The victor of that race will face the Democratic candidate - former Clinton U.S. Attorney Doug Jones - on December 12.

"Judge" Roy Moore is leading Luther Strange by 8 to 14 points according to various polls.

Wall Street experts also assign a $32.33 price target on The GEO Group, Inc., pointing towards a 24.63% rally from current levels. The Sage Group plc has a 50 day moving average of 694.57 GBX and a 200 day moving average of 675.88.

The presidential visit could be considered something akin to a cavalry visit for unusual, who has been forced into a tight race with Moore, despite the backing of Trump and millions in advertising dollars from allies of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Looking forward to Friday night in the Great State of Alabama. While serving as state attorney general, his office investigated Bentley. "I think in Luther's case he's extremely qualified, already here, already a good senator", said Sen.

The McConnell-aligned Senate Leadership Fund has provided his campaign with millions of dollars in ads.

Trump's rally with unusual on Friday, just days before the runoff, is likely to give the incumbent senator a significant boost ― perhaps even one large enough to catapult him to re-election.

Watch the entire video of Moore's remarks below.

A Bannon ally commented, "it's clear Trump is getting bad advice from the Democrats in the West Wing", noting Trump's recent decisions, "First Afghanistan, then DACA, now this?" A loss by odd would be a blow to McConnell.
