Despite former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore campaigning hard as a Trump supporter, the President rather surprisingly yesterday endorsed appointed Sen. Luther Strange in this last week before the special Republican primary. Sen. Strange has consistently lauded the President, but is also backed heavily by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) political operation. With the President’s congressional relations lukewarm at best, the endorsement is unexpected and could certainly be a game changer for Sen. Strange. The most likely scenario for next Tuesday’s GOP primary is Messrs. Moore and Strange, very possibly in that order, advancing to a September 26th run-off election.
