  • Chamber to endorse Strange, poll shows support for Democrat Doug Jones

Trump waves to a crowd of tens of thousands in Mobile, Alabama.

President Donald Trump announced today he will be in Huntsville Saturday to lend his support to Luther Strange who is campaigning to keep his Senate seat.

Unusual is in a heated runoff battle with former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for the Senate seat that previously belonged to Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

President Trump made the announcement through his Twitter page Saturday. "I need a dependable partner in the Senate to fight for the people of Alabama, and Luther Strange is the man for the job".

Strange, the state's former attorney general, in February was appointed by former Gov. Robert Bentley to the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. Trump endorsed unusual before the August primary. Now that odd and Moore have entered the runoff, the President has made clear that he is sticking behind "Big Luther".

Trump tweeted Saturday afternoon that he would travel to Huntsville on September 23 in support of odd, who Trump called "a great guy who gets things done!"

"Trump says, "'Big Luther' is a great guy who gets things done!"
