Roy Moore, Luther Strange Head for Runoff in Alabama Senate Race

HOMEWOOD, Ala. (New York Times) Roy S. Moore, a former chief justice of the State Supreme Court, and Senator Luther Strange emerged from a crowded Republican field on Tuesday in a special Senate primary in Alabama, according to The Associated Press. They will face off for their party’s nomination next month in a runoff election, a contest that will test President Trump’s clout in a deeply conservative state.

Neither Mr. Strange, 64, backed by Mr. Trump and millions of dollars in spending by outside groups, nor Mr. Moore, 70, a favorite of evangelical voters, received more than 50 percent of the vote in a race that evolved into seeing who could embrace Mr. Trump more when the leading contenders were closely aligned on policy.

But Mr. Moore significantly outpolled Mr. Strange, taking 39.6 percent of the vote to the senator’s 32.1 percent, with 91 percent of precincts reporting as of 11:35 p.m. Eastern time. Representative Mo Brooks, a hard-line conservative, finished third with 19.8 percent of the vote.

    Sounds ok, but it still won’t matter. Judgement is set AGAINST the u.s. because of her many abominations she flaunts in the face of the Lord. So you display the ten commandments, yet can’t git the u.s. to REPENT of their hellish abominations and sins. That’s like holding the Bible up in the air but are helpless in gittin’ the people to repent of their wickedness.

    And as well, the constitution along with the u.s. laws are based on the freemasonry “god” which is actually satan himself. This is why that eye of horus (occultic ‘all seeing eye’) must be somewhere on any “public” display in order to be excepted.
