Trump Humiliated By His Own Party After Roy Moore Defeats Luther Strange

This Tuesday night Roy Moore won the Alabama GOP primary by trouncing his opponent Luther Strange in what may be a double digit margin, but the truth is this was never really much of an election.

In 2000, Moore was elected to be the chief justice of the Alabama supreme court, after campaigning heavily on religious messages and anti-gay sentiments.

Luther Strange: 203,435 votes, or 45.11%. Mitch McConnell. The race was dubbed a "Trump supporter civil war" because Moore was seen as the more Trump-like candidate, but Trump endorsed unusual.

At a campaign rally in Fairhope, Alabama on Monday, Moore sported a cowboy hat and at one point drew a gun waved it in the air, trying to illustrate his commitment to the Second Amendment.

"They feel like maybe I would take the same kind of attitude at the United States Senate", Moore said of Senate Republicans in an interview with Politico. And in a final push on behalf of Strange, Vice President Mike Pence campaigned with him at a closing rally Monday night in Birmingham, the state's largest city.

"Judge Roy Moore is an embodiment of what we chose on November the 8th previous year when we elected Trump into office", Gorka told the BBC.

The vice president also sent his congratulations to the victor.

"The national Republicans will support him, even if they have to grind the enamel off their teeth".

Roy Moore and Luther Strange are card carrying white supremacist sympathizers and white nationalists. "And Alabama answered today - the people".

But Moore said he would back the president if he gets to Washington.

"Judge Roy Moore is unfit for office, and his primary victory means huge problems for Republicans across the country", said Joshua Karp, a spokesman for Democratic opposition research group American Bridge. "We are thrilled you ran on the #MAGA (Make America Great Again) agenda & we are for you!"

The race was such a blowout that the Senate Leadership Fund, a super PAC with ties to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, congratulated Moore even before the AP called the race. "I urge all of our friends who were active in the primary to redouble their efforts in the general election".

The special election gained national prominence because of what was at stake: the political sway of President Donald Trump's administration versus the base that helped him win the White House.

Moore has spent most of his career oscillating between gadfly, provocateur, and pariah.

Trump has been outspokenly supportive of odd since before the August primary, but according to Politico, he is becoming increasingly resigned to a loss, and is ready to support Moore in the general election. We'll unpack the results from Alabama's special election. "Voters can't look past Roy Moore's fringe beliefs, habit of putting himself first and his dishonesty". Ted Cruz, R-Texas, who has said he refrains from getting involved in primaries involving incumbents, odd had the support of almost all his colleagues in the Senate. A man of his word, in 2005 Moore said homosexuality should be illegal. Twice, he was stripped of his duties as chief justice for defying the law.

Roy Moore is one step closer to becoming the junior US senator from Alabama. "When Doug was appointed to serve as a USA attorney, his integrity earned him a confirmation by a Republican-controlled Senate".
