Alabama Senator and former Attorney General Luther Strange is pulling out all the stops to maintain his Senate seat – including calls from the President.
Strange’s campaign announced yesterday that President Donald Trump has recorded robocalls telling Alabama voters to “go to the polls and vote for Luther Strange.” Trump says his administration is accomplishing many of his campaign promises, but he “needs Luther to help us out.”
Strange was appointed to the U.S. Senate in February by former Governor Robert Bentley. He’s locked in a tight primary battle with several GOP challengers including former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore and U.S. Representative Mo Brooks, a member of the House Freedom Caucus. Primary elections for the Senate seat are being held today, with polls open until 7 p.m.
Strange’s campaign has paid to send Trump’s recorded message to more than 150,000 Republican households in the state.
