In Alabama, voters are heading to the polls today for a special Senate runoff race to fill the seat of now-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The race between the Republican candidates, Senator Luther Strange and former state Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore, has divided both the Republican Party and the Trump administration. Strange has won the backing of the party establishment and President Trump. On Monday, Vice President Mike Pence spoke at Strange’s rally in Birmingham. President Trump has also rallied for Strange. But his rival, Roy Moore, has won the backing of former White House senior adviser Steve Bannon and the far-right wing of the Republican Party. The winner of today’s election will face Democratic nominee Doug Jones, a former U.S. attorney, in the general election in December.
