Alabama Senate Primaries
This election is being watched intently as President Trump came out in support of Luthor Strange, who was appointed by former Gov. Robert Bentley to replace Sessions.
Big day in Alabama. Vote for Luther Strange, he will be great!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1502798881.0
Some Conservatives, however, support Huntsville Congressman Mo Brooks for the position.
The polls in Alabama closed at 7pm Eastern Time.
The Decision Desk people offered a caveat for these elections: "If no candidate receives 50% of the vote, the top two finishers will go to a runoff in September. To avoid confusion, we will not be making a race call (with a checkmark) unless a candidate wins outright and avoids a runoff."
Trump allies Sean Hannity and Mark Levin are parting with the president and backing Moe Brooks.
Here's hoping Mo Brooks supporters in Alabama turnout in large numbers to vote today and defeat McConnell's lapdog, Luther Strange!— Mark R. Levin (@Mark R. Levin) 1502796649.0
