Trump Endorses Strange in Alabama Senate Race

President Donald Trump endorsed interim Sen. Luther Strange in the race for the U.S. Senate in Alabama. Mr. Strange was appointed by former Gov. Robert Bentley, R-Ala., after the confirmation of now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who previously held the seat.

The President’s endorsement comes as polling shows Strange falling further behind the frontrunner, Judge Roy Moore. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., whom Team Trump in Alabama was supporting, was surging and threatening to overtake him in second place.

Sen. Strange is without a doubt the least conservative choice among the top three and also the less pro-Trump. He has spent nearly $10 million trying to convince the voters of Alabama that he supports the Trump agenda.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kty., supports Strange. In fact, he threatened GOP pollsters considering working against him, putting the word out that they would starve for work.
