He is sure to win the general election against Democrat Doug Jones…..

Trump gave lukewarm support to Senator Luther Strong, who was chosen to replace Jeff Session, who left the job to become the US Attorney General….

Trump has said he’ll support Moore in the general election….

Former Alabama judge Roy Moore has won the state’s Republican Senate runoff, a victory that will threatens establishment Republicans and hands President Trump his first electoral loss since taking office.

Moore led every public poll since he and Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) advanced to the runoff in August. And the former state Supreme Court justice’s reputation as a conservative firebrand won him the enthusiasm of the party grassroots, even as Strange and his allies outspent him by a staggering margin.

But now that the GOP’s insurgent wing has taken its first Republican incumbent scalp, establishment Republicans now have to reckon with what that means for the party’s future.

Moore ran as an unabashed opponent of the Washington establishment and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), whose allies poured more than $10 million into the race on Strange’s behalf.

  2. This is going to “stop” up Mitch McConnell real good for awhile.

    The National Republicans are falling in-line, and Trump has already deleted his pro-Luther tweets.

  3. The question arises,

    Is this a trend or a fluke?

    True, Strange was an appointed Senator by a scandal scarred Governor,but he had been previously elected in his own right as AG .Moore was booted off the Alabama Supreme Court by his own colleagues.

    Moore, despite his non support fromTrump, promised to be his biggest supporter and received help from many of Trumps people.

    Will we see more primary challenges from serious pro Trump types to sitting incumbent Senators and Congresspeople?

    1. The GOP crazies?

      The better for Democrats and more headaches for Ryan, McConnell and ultimately Trump himself….

      (Could it be a secret plan to give the Congress BACK to the Democrats in 2019!)
