Roy Moore vs. Luther Strange

Despite that, he is considered an overwhelming favorite in the deep red state against Democrat Doug Jones in December's general election.

Roy Moore and Luther Strange are card carrying white supremacist sympathizers and white nationalists. The latest Republican effort to undo much of Obamacare-which GOP leaders abandoned Tuesday afternoon-would have resulted in millions of additional Americans going without health insurance.

Hours later, Tennessee Sen.

Unusual has looked to support from the White House in the heated race with Moore who was twice removed as state chief justice by a judicial ethics panel for stands against gay marriage and for the public display of the Ten Commandments. He finished in second to Moore in last month's primary vote, but qualified for Tuesday's runoff because no candidate in the race received more than 50% of the vote. Can Trump push an "establishment" candidate like Luther Strange past a "Breitbart" wing candidate like Roy Moore?

And in Alabama, Trump and McConnell are both risking their political capital in support of the establishment candidate, incumbent GOP Sen. "He ran a spirited campaign centered around a dissatisfaction with the progress made in Washington".

The Associated Press called the race for Moore just before 9:30 Eastern time. "It looks bleak at the moment", said the No. 3 Senate Republican, John Thune of South Dakota. But in significant ways, his campaign differed from any other Senate campaign in recent memory.

"If people in this country take a knee and the National Football League players want to take a knee, they should take a knee at night, every night, and thank God in heaven Donald J. Trump is president of the United States", he said.

Moore has made other inflammatory comments, including claiming that the 9/11 attacks were punishment because the US had "distanced" itself from God. He was re-elected to the job, and then ousted again in 2016, when he refused to follow the US Supreme Court's ruling legalizing same-sex marriage.

India Seeks Deportation of Rohingya for Security Reasons
On behalf of the government , Suu Kyi said the Myanmar authorities are set to restore security and order in Rakhine state. The Supreme Court on Monday will hear plea filed by the two Rohingya immigrants, Mohammad Salimullah and Mohammad Shaqir.

If he makes it to Congress, Moore is likely to create major headaches for Republican leadership. In November 2003, a judicial panel unanimously voted to oust Moore from office.

It would also cause more headaches for McConnell in the next two years.

"That guy Roy Moore is way, way out there".

The final day of campaigning was filled with colorful campaign displays across the state. The guest list included Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson, Brexit leader Nigel Farage and Fox News host Sean Hannity.

WASHINGTON (AP) - A high-stakes week got off to a bad start for President Donald Trump, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and the GOP. It wasn't enough to carry unusual over Moore's populist tidal wave, even in a state Trump won by 30 points.

Mr Moore's success raises the possibility that while Republican Party loyalists have sought a means to work with the president, the forces that swept him to power could be beyond even Mr Trump's control.

Although Moore led all public polls in the weeks leading up to the election, turnout was expected to be low, creating the potential for a surprise outcome. The election of either of these men in the current environment empowers white nationalists whose penchant for race first policies are neither conservative nor libertarian, they are literally a danger to national security.
