Trump takes center stage in fractious Senate race in Alabama

"No, Russia did not help me", Trump said. Regrettably, the uncooperative congressional leadership has not produced any major victories for the President or his 63 million supporters.

"The swamp is trying to hijack this presidency", said Palin. Flynt said Moore appeals to voters who are exhausted of the establishment candidates on both sides of the aisle. Somebody said, 'Well, what are you going to do, you going to build that wall in the middle of the river?.

Unusual is running by tying himself firmly to the president's ankle.

Next Tuesday in Alabama, Republican voters will have an outstanding opportunity to provide the President with some crucial assistance.

The latest survey of the Alabama Republican Senate primary has Judge Roy Moore leading Sen.

A win by Moore in Alabama could embolden other insurgent candidates to challenge Republican incumbents in next year's congressional elections, and perhaps give an edge to Democrats in some of those races.

Moore is the rival of Luther Strange, who enjoys the backing of President Donald Trump, according to Politico.

Trump considered leaving odd on his own in the runoff against Moore as Moore surged ahead in late-August polling, CNN reported Thursday.

McConnell's political action committee is pumping big money into Alabama to help unusual. Jeff Sessions became Trump's attorney general.

After their unbeaten start to the 2017/18 Premier League season, Stewart Robson explains why Manchester United are favourites for the title.

In a rare moment for any president, he told voters exactly why he endorsed Sen.

And it highlights what appears to be a growing rift between the outsider president and his grassroots supporters, many of whom have vocally backed Moore's candidacy. "We're going to take care of the bad people", Trump said, adding "the world is starting to respect the United States of America again".

Unusual is trying to ward off a challenge from Roy Moore, an arch-conservative former state Supreme Court justice, in a runoff election next week.

But even he acknowledged his alliance with the appointed senator was somewhat unusual given the fact that so many of his allies - such as former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, former national security aide Sebastian Gorka and former vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin - are all backing Strange's opponent, former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.

"You are going to come back and kick everybody's ass", Trump said in reference to a call between himself and unusual regarding the Senate election. Evidently, the President is supporting unusual to bolster the standing of McConnell before important Senate votes on tax reform and repealing Obamacare.

And Trump seems to understand that odd may not win, musing at a Friday night rally meant to boost unusual that Trump's own reputation was on the line.

Trump's popularity is Strange's strongest asset against Moore, who has over decades developed a loyal following in Alabama based on his message of making Christianity prominent in public policy-making and restricting LGBT rights. The example Trump cited is that when he called Strange for his yes vote on repealing Obamacare, Strange was the only Senator that granted it with no strings attached. While the President signed the legislation, he was clearly perturbed at the infringement on his executive authority.

Twice ousted from the bench, the U.S. Senate contender has a history of provocative comments that have simultaneously made him a lightning rod for controversy and propelled his popularity in the conservative Deep South state. Something dramatic is needed to undo the logjam in the U.S. Senate.
