Congressman backs Moore in tight Alabama GOP Senate runoff


Mo Brooks is throwing his support behind former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in the state's Senate primary runoff against Sen. Luther Strange, who faces a runoff in the Republican primary to fill his seat.

Odd is in a heated runoff battle with former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for the Senate seat that previously belonged to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"I am proud to have President Trump's endorsement in this race and I am looking forward to his trip to Alabama", said Luther Strange in a press release.

President Donald Trump announced today he will be in Huntsville Saturday to lend his support to Luther Strange who is campaigning to keep his Senate seat.

The endorsement by Brooks, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, could give Moore, a Republican, a timely boost in advance of the primary runoff coming up on September 26.

At a Saturday rally in Huntsville, Brooks said he has voted by absentee ballot for Moore.

Despite those controversies, the White House reaffirmed Trump's support for odd last week.

Moore and unusual will speak in alternating five-minute intervals.

According to a campaign spokesperson more details will be available soon. Brooks said Moore will "fight for America" and criticized "malicious" tactics of a PAC supporting unusual. "The Strange/ McConnell forces care not one twit about truth; they freely use malicious lies in their non-stop, scorched earth, campaign of personal destruction".
