Roy Moore supporters embrace Trump at rally without actually mentioning him

Roy Moore supporters embrace Trump at rally without actually mentioning him”

Moore has been making campaign fodder out of Strange's links to and support from other Republicans.

As the two closed their moderator-free debate Thursday, Moore said that "there is a God in Heaven that's in this campaign".

Trump's decision to back unusual, the candidate anointed by the Washington GOP establishment and appointed by disgraced former Ala.

A sampling of the president's most ardent supporters gathered Thursday in a sweltering train shed to puzzle-and vent-over Trump's decision to back Sen. It's who gets their voters out to the polls.

Unusual mentioned his support from Trump and relationship with the president repeatedly throughout the debate.

Trump noted the Alabama race was close, but said he appreciated Strange's support during the push to overhaul President Barack Obama's health care law.

Moore responded by comparing gay sex to bestiality.

Moore was removed as state chief justice in 2003 after refusing an order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the state's high court building. He's also strongly disliked by some Alabama Republicans and ran almost 10 points behind Mitt Romney on the 2012 ballot. CNN's investigative team KFILE unearthed a 2005 interview where he said that "homosexual conduct should be illegal".

Unusual shot back, calling Moore's attack "insulting".

With both Bannon and Gorka unleashed from Trump's White House, their mission to turn the GOP into the party of the alt-right may just spark a counterproductive civil war. But Gorka's efforts to link Moore with Trump were strained at times.

He cast Tuesday's election as another version of Trump's-a choice between "corruption" or "America", he said, glossing over Trump's endorsement. Moore went on to win the seat easily in the general election.

Unusual is a close ally of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell but opposed by talk show host Mark Levin and other leaders on the Right as ineffectual and unprincipled.

"It is a moral precept upon which this country was founded", Moore replied, obliquely.

Some have simplified the choice in Alabama's closely watched primary as either a vote of confidence in Trump (Strange) or a message to the "swamp" (Moore).

Press interrupted Moore to ask him to actually answer the question. "We need more bold leaders like Judge Moore who will fight for all of us in the U.S. Senate".

With just a few days until the runoff, Moore leads unusual by about 9 points in the RealClearPolitics average of polls. Trump is scheduled to attend a odd rally on Friday night in Huntsville. That's not entirely clear.

Enter Democratic candidate Doug Jones, who is statistically tied with Moore and Moore's Republican opponent, Luther Strange. "But, alas, 10 months later, guys, the swamp, it's trying to hijack this presidency", said Palin, who unsuccessfully ran for vice president in 2008 and was one of the leaders of the Tea Party movement that predated the Trump movement.
