Trump travels to Alabama to campaign for 'Big' Luther Strange ahead of Senate runoff

Strange is Trump's favored candidate in the race.

Trump, who won the state by a nearly 28 percent margin in the 2016 presidential election, has endorsed Luther Strange, the incumbent temporarily appointed to fill the seat.

“Alabama is sooo lucky to have a candidate like 'Big' Luther Strange,” Trump tweeted about his favored candidate Wednesday.

Vice President Mike Pence is also expected to campaign for Strange on Monday, just a day before the GOP primary that is slated for Sept.26.

The winner of the primary will move on to the special election on Dec. 12 and face the Democratic candidate, Doug Jones, who is recognized as the lead prosecutor in the 1963 Birmingham church bombing case that killed four African-American girls.
