US Senate GOP Runoff

He also wiped out a tweet from Tuesday evening congratulating Moore on the victory, in which he wrote "Luther Strange started way back & ran a good race".

At the Huntsville rally, Trump said he's "taking a big risk" in endorsing unusual "because if Luther doesn't make it" the media is "going to go after me".

Moore's campaign, aided by ousted former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, spoke directly to supporters of numerous president's key campaign proposals.

When Former Sen. Jeff Sessions became Attorney General to Trump Administration, Luther Strange took the vacated seat.

Moore winning against Trump's candidate is a huge blow for the President, and a strong revelation that the Trump brand is not as strong as Trump would have voters think.

The President, who is wildly popular in Alabama, held rally for Sen. The president supported unusual, who lost. In 2003, he was dismissed for hanging a copy of the Ten Commandments in his courtroom, Thirteen years later, he defied the US Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges, which legalized same-sex marriage nationwide. But it should certainly serve as a reminder to the administration of the danger in setting aside the fiery campaign promises Trump made before entering the Oval Office for a more business-as-usual style of Washington politics.

Trump already has scrubbed prior tweets showing his support for unusual, and tweeted Tuesday night, "Spoke to Roy Moore of Alabama last night for the first time". Melissa and I appreciate the many devoted friends and family who have supported us over the past months, the many Alabamians who have given us a warm welcome in every corner of the state, and the brigade of volunteers who left it all out on the field in this campaign.

He won the GOP senate run-off in Alabama Tuesday with about 55% of the Republican vote. Despite Strange's loss, Trump remains popular in the state.

Throughout the campaign, Mr Moore argued the election was an opportunity to send a message to the "elite Washington establishment" that he said was trying to influence the race.

A week ago, the president tweeted that he was 'looking forward to Friday night in the Great State of Alabama.

"We have to return the knowledge of God and the Constitution of the United States to the United States Congress", Moore told the crowd. They can point to polling that has, at times, found Moore with only a single-digit lead over Jones.

Odd told his supporters Tuesday night that "we wish (Moore) well going forward".

Moore vowed to fight for the people of Alabama, and thanked them for their support. The new governor called for a special election on December 12.
