Alabama's Senate Race To Boil Down To Trump Tweet?

Wochit Headline News - Sunday, 13 August 2017
U.S. Representative Mo Brooks may seem exactly the kind of candidate President Donald Trump would love to see win Tuesday's Republican primary election for Alabama's open U.S. Senate seat. The 63-year-old Republican is a Freedom Caucus member and an immigration hardliner. Echoing Trump's penchant for bestowing insulting nicknames on his political foes, he calls opponent Luther Strange "Lying Luther." But it was 64 year old Strange - the former state attorney general who was appointed to fill the Senate seat left vacant after Jeff Sessions became U.S. attorney general - who earned a coveted prize of Trump's "complete and total endorsement," via Twitter.
