Sen. Strange: Trump Endorsement Will 'Make All the Difference' in Alabama Senate Race
Strange, who was temporarily appointed to the Senate seat in April after Jeff Sessions joined the Trump administration, is neck-and-neck with former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.
Trump argued during the rally that Strange would have a better chance than Moore at winning the general election if Strange secures the Republican nomination next week.
“That is why I’m here tonight to ask the good people of Alabama to send Luther Strange to the United States Senate, so he can defend your interests, fight for your values and always put America first,” Trump said.
On "Fox & Friends Weekend," Strange said he could not be more grateful for Trump's friendship and endorsement.
Strange, who has also been endorsed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, said his critics are linking him to McConnell in an effort to portray him as part of the Washington, D.C., establishment.
"I'm the newest person to be in Washington," Strange said. "And I've got the record of draining the swamp, taking on the establishment. So I'm sticking with the president. And I'm glad he stuck with me last night. I think it's going to make all the difference in this race."
He said the race will hinge on which candidate gets their supporters to turn out, and he has great confidence that the people of Alabama love the president and will take his endorsement to heart.
