President Donald Trump tweeted congratulations to Judge Roy Moore for his resounding victory over incumbent Senator Luther Strange. The President backed the appointed incumbent as a matter of loyalty after he gave him his support on healthcare without asking for a favor in return.
The judge will go on to face Democrat and former U.S. attorney Doug Jones in the general election on December 12 for the seat vacated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Congratulations to Roy Moore on his Republican Primary win in Alabama. Luther Strange started way back & ran a good race. Roy, WIN in Dec!
