Trump to campaign for odd on Friday in Huntsville

Congressman Mo Brooks endorses Roy Moore at Huntsville rally

It's going to take some pretty racist feet to fill the shoes of former Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions, who vacated his seat to serve as Donald Trump's attorney general. Moore has the backing of a number of anti-establishment forces, including the pro-Trump Great America Alliance, as he seeks to dethrone odd, who was appointed to the seat in February.

Trump reaffirmed his support for unusual in a tweet over the weekend.

At the rally in Huntsville, Moore said the Republican-controlled Senate is failing Trump. "Big Luther" is a great guy who gets things done!"

"What most people outside of Alabama don't realize is that Moore is probably the most Trump-esque candidate in the country right now", Alabama-based GOP pollster and strategist Brent Buchanan said. 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.

The general election in Alabama will take place in December, but Alabama leans heavily conservative, meaning whoever wins next week's primary election is likely to become the state's next senator.

Three Charged in Georgia Tech Riots After Police Shoot Student
Lance Wallace, a university spokesman, said Georgia Tech campus police do not carry Tasers but they do carry pepper spray. Authorities say three people have been arrested after an eruption of violence on Georgia Tech's campus Monday night.

Even President Donald Trump, who's had spats with McConnell, is on board to make sure unusual keeps his seat.

Trump will headline a rally for unusual on Friday night, which the senator's D.C. backers are hopeful will help push him over the finish line come Tuesday, Sept. 26. He was investigating then-Gov.

Moore is a grass-roots conservative, an outspoken critic of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the Washington "swamp". Earlier this month, after Trump announced his decision to wind down President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for so-called DREAMers, Moore didn't know what the program was. "But to have a relationship, a working relationship, with them and the president, I think it puts me in a very unique position in Washington". After serving in the Army, Judge Moore completed his Juris Doctor degree from The University of Alabama School of Law in 1977.

"Strange-McConnell forces care not one twit about the truth", Brooks told Times Daily.
