Republican Senate Primary In Alabama Is Exposing Deep Fissures In Party

Next Tuesday, voters will choose Moore or odd to take on former U.S. Attorney and Democratic nominee Doug Jones in the general election in December.

On Friday, Trump will appear alongside odd at a rally in Huntsville, Alabama. Unusual is locked in a tight race with former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, a jurist who has taken losing stands for the public display of the Ten Commandments and against gay marriage.

It is the only debate so far confirmed between the two Republicans ahead of the September 26 runoff in the race for Attorney General Jeff Sessions' former Senate seat.

Trump and Vice President Mike Pence are scheduled to headline campaign events for unusual over the next few days.

Odd has the backing of President Trump, through his tweeting, as well as the Republican leadership in Washington, but still trails Moore in most polls with only a few more days to go.

Challenger Moore, running on an anti-Washington platform, has backing from former Trump chief strategist Bannon and his conservative website Breitbart News, and the Great America Alliance, an advocacy group that supports Trump. As of August 2017, odd voted in line with Trump's position 91.7% of the time. A spokesperson for Moore's campaign, Noel Fritsch said he wouldn't answer CNN's questions about Moore's current position.

Odd said Trump's support has come due to their close personal friendship and because the president knows he'll remain loyal to him and his agenda.

After Trump initially endorsed unusual, he was shown polling in late August that predicted Moore would defeat odd by a significant margin, sources familiar told CNN.

"It's who gets their voters out to the polls".

"Alabama is sooo lucky to have a candidate like "Big" Luther Strange", Trump tweeted.

Maybe Trump Is The One Not Committed To The Wall Also an odd choice by Strange's media consultants was the inclusion of Trump's shutdown threat, which he himself abandoned several days earlier when he agreed to a three-month government spending deal that did not include any money for the wall.

On Sept. 26, Moore will compete against incumbent GOP Sen.

That fall, the ACLU, along with the Southern Poverty Law Center, sued Moore for violating "the constitutional principle of separation of church and state". Do you think that homosexual-homosexuality, or homosexual conduct should be illegal today?
