Sessions left the Senate to become Trump's attorney general.

At the time of his exit, Bannon said, "I am definitely going to crush the opposition".

Mr Moore, 70, is best known for twice losing his position on the Alabama Supreme Court.

"Roy Moore is Huey Long with religion", said Jim Zeigler, a Republican who is the state auditor.

Earlier in the morning, Trump had tweeted: "Luther Strange has been shooting up in the Alabama polls since my endorsement". Michelle Malkin, host of Michelle Malkin Investigates on CRTV, joined the Todd Starnes Show today to elaborate on the thought that Roy Moore's victory over Sen.
