However, the president gave a very different character description of unusual in tweeting his plans to support the incumbent in Huntsville, AL, this upcoming Saturday saying "Big Luther is a great guy who gets things done".

The president's endorsement, Dr. Powell said, helped unusual secure a place in the runoff. Luther Strange as he tries to retain Attorney General Jeff Sessions' Senate seat in what's turning out to be a messy inter-party fight in one of the America's most conservative states.
Now Trump and Pence, having agreed to spend more time on unusual, risk political embarrassment if Moore prevails.
Moore was removed from office in 2003 after he insisted on displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom. "We at America First are proud to continue to support him ahead of the September 26 runoff".More news: Change My Be Coming for Some National Monuments

Brooks, speaking at a Huntsville rally for Moore, criticized negative ads run by a pro-Strange PAC against Moore, saying the "Strange-McConnell forces care not one twit about the truth". The federal government will never willingly relinquish the powers it has usurped - it's up to We the People to wrest control from an overreaching federal leviathan and give it back to our state and local representatives where it belongs. This Senate race is down to this. When Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) was asked if he thought Moore would be a productive member of the Republican caucus, Cornyn said, "I do not".
Brooks said he already had voted for Moore via absentee ballot.
The NRA-the country's largest Second Amendment advocacy organization-told Yellowhammer today that it is launching a seven-figure ad campaign across Alabama starting tomorrow as a show of support for odd in these last ten days of the election. Both Strange and Moore have aligned themselves with Trump, who remains deeply popular in the blood red state.
Despite those advantages, the incumbent Alabama senator has struggled to compete against Moore, a staunch evangelical who has led in most polls and who is seen as the prohibitive front-runner in the race.
"I think it is very important", Hughes said, "mainly because it will allow the candidates to talk about where they stand on the issues". He's all in. He wants someone in Washington he can work with. Some establishment Republicans say they're also anxious Moore would embolden other conservative challengers in primaries, putting McConnell's hold on his caucus in even more peril.
It's expected to be an uphill battle for unusual, who polls indicate is trailing. And that worries some Senate Republicans.
