Moore defeats odd to win GOP nomination in US Senate race

Roy Moore wins Alabama's Republican Senate primary, defeating Trump-backed candidate

During the radio appearance Trump said Americans were right to be frustrated with Congress for not delivering on a marquee campaign promise. “They should be. It’s disgusting,” Trump said. “When I ran I was told I’d have a bill on my desk. I

Here's my look at the best and the worst from Tuesday night. Mike Lee of Utah, Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas.

Moore has also suggested that the 9/11 attacks were God's way of punishing America for sinfulness, that former President Barack Obama was not born in the United States, and that Muslims should be barred from serving in Congress. President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell backed Moore's primary opponent, Sen. "And we can not make America good without acknowledging the sovereign source of that goodness. which is almighty God". Don't be surprised if Jones receives a fundraising boost from Democrats nationwide looking to beat Trump, and expect some Democrats with potential presidential aspirations, like Joe Biden, to campaign for Jones in the fall. "And so I think basically that this climate has been set", Moore said in the MSNBC interview.

Trump, who campaigned for odd last week and has tweeted in support of his candidacy, congratulated Moore on Twitter. "Luther Strange has started away and is well tucked up. Roy, WIN in Dec!" Strange, in turn, has been a loyal supporter of Trump in the Senate - a reliable conservative vote.

"I don't think you're going to see millions and millions of dollars on both sides flowing into this race", Jaime Harrison, the associate chairman of the Democratic National Committee, told NBC News.

When former judge Roy Moore bounded onto stage Tuesday night to declare victory in the Alabama Republican primary, he was quick to offer his own explanation for his resounding nine-point win. The 63-year old attorney, who has never before run for office, has raised less than $300,000 despite securing his nomination a month ago; Moore, who was outspent by odd, raised more than $1.4 million.

The result, though, is an embarrassing setback for Trump that highlights the deep divisions within his party and raises questions about its future direction as the GOP heads toward mid-term elections in 2018. In Moore's case, though, a good many Alabamians saw him as a bit too radical, in refusing to comply with federal law over his religious beliefs.

Democrats who have not seriously contested an Alabama Senate race since 1996 think they have a credible candidate in Doug Jones, a former USA attorney who successfully prosecuted members of the Ku Klux Klan who bombed a black church in Birmingham in 1963, killing four girls.

Fresh off a win in Alabama, Breitbart chief Steve Bannon is taking action to keep up his role in a coming Republican divide.

He has blamed 9/11, and numerous nation's ills, on the removal of religion from public life. Sure enough, he quickly thumbed his nose at the federal judiciary again; this time ordering probate judges in Alabama to defy the Supreme Court ruling legalizing same sex marriage.

"Big election tomorrow in the Great State of Alabama". It will be won by seeing the people, seeing rural Alabama and urban Alabama in the country stores and cafes, cow sales, fire departments and fish fries, small town Alabama, school houses and courthouses.

Even though Alabama has not sent a Democrat to the U.S. Senate in two decades, Democrats are hopeful they have an opening in the December election against Moore. He says he beat unusual because people in Alabama "understand what I stand for".
