Trump to campaign for Alabama Sen. Luther Strange

19 September 2017

"I will be in Huntsville, Alabama, on Saturday night to support Luther Strange for Senate", the president tweeted Saturday.

Donald Trump speaks during a thank you rally in Ladd-Peebles Stadium on December 17, 2016 in Mobile, Alabama.

"Luther Strange has consistently stood up for Alabama's values", said Senator Richard Shelby in a press release. Trump wrote. The Strange campaign could not immediately provide details of Trump's visit. "'Big Luther' is a great guy who gets things done!" Odd replaced Jeff Sessions, who became the U.S. Attorney General. Strange, who was the Alabama state attorney general until earlier this year when he was appointed to the U.S. Senate, is struggling to keep up with challenger and former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court Roy Moore in the September 26 runoff.

Palace pin hopes on Hodgson for fortune revival
They are performing poorly in this season. "The only comfort I could take is that we got better as the game went on". He was replaced by former England manager Roy Hodgson and his arrival has prompted a backroom reshuffle.

Recent polls show a tight race between Moore and unusual, who advanced to the runoff after obtaining the most votes in the Republican primary in last month's special election. Such a battle could drain Republican funds from contested Democrat seats.

Moore has the endorsements of former rival Rep. Mo Brooks (R-Ala.)- who came in third in the primary- and of House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows.

Among the McConnell-tied Senate incumbents Bannon is reportedly tilting against are Jeff Flake in Arizona, Dean Heller in Nevada, Bob Corker in Tennessee and Roger Wicker in Mississippi.

The anti-terrorist prosecutor seized after attacking a military in Paris
France declared a state of emergency following attacks in Paris in November 2015, in which more than 130 people were killed. The unidentified man is said to have rushed at a patrol of soldiers wearing combat uniforms and brandishing assault rifles.

Moore was removed from his position as chief justice in November 2003 for refusing federal court orders to take down a Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Judicial Building.

Political observers in Alabama believe Bannon's influence has done little to boost Moore, but his friendship with billionaire anti-establishment GOP donors such as Robert Mercer could help close the considerable financial advantage unusual enjoys. This puts Bannon and the president on the opposite side of this telling primary. "What's changed?" Moore asks in the video below, as first reported by The Hill. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is also expected to be in Alabama supporting Moore before voters go to the polls. Shortly after, odd was appointed to fill the seat until an election could be held.

The race has split the Republican Party along establishment and insurgent lines. Michael Beschloss, a presidential historian, told The New York Times the conditions were so ripe for a split: "I've been startled that this has not happened".
