Sen. Luther Strange will face jurist Roy Moore in Alabama’s Republican Senate runoff


 Republican voters here put a bitter Senate campaign into overtime Tuesday, forcing Sen. Luther Strange into a runoff with conservative jurist Roy Moore for the right to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s old seat.

Strange was endorsed by President Trump, the National Rifle Association and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s super PAC, which spent $2.5 million on TV ads to boost him in Tuesday’s primary. That helped push him past Rep. Mo Brooks, saving national Republicans from embarrassment in a unique midsummer election marked by low turnout.

Democrats, who have not won a Senate race in Alabama since 1992, nominated former U.S. attorney Doug Jones over a field of fringe candidates.
