'I Want the Wall Built': Alabamian Diners Sound Off on Senate Election Day
Voters in Alabama are heading to the polls today for a special election primary for the U.S. Senate seat vacated when Jeff Sessions was confirmed as attorney general.
The race is expected to come down to three candidates: Rep. Mo Brooks, incumbent Sen. Luther Strange and former State Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore.
Since no candidate is likely to win an outright majority of the vote, the top two vote-getters are expected meet in a run-off election in September.
"Fox & Friends" correspondent Todd Piro visited Jim's Restaurant in Prattville, Alabama, to talk to voters about the special election and which candidate they want to see fill Sessions' Senate seat.
A man named Walt said he's not crazy about any of the candidates, but he's voting for Strange because that's who President Trump endorsed.
Senator Luther Strange has done a great job representing the people of the Great State of Alabama. He has my complete and total endorsement!

Luther Strange of the Great State of Alabama has my endorsement. He is strong on Border & Wall, the military, tax cuts & law enforcement.

Big day in Alabama. Vote for Luther Strange, he will be great!

"Luther Strange, I've heard him say that he would back Trump's agenda," Walt said. "And that's what I'm looking for."
He said the issue of illegal immigration is particularly important to him, and he wants to see Trump's proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border constructed.
"I want the wall built. And Trump, he fired me up by saying that in his rallies," Walt said. "I went to one of his rallies in Madison, Alabama, and he fired me up, along with thousands of other people in this country."
A woman named Kendall said she's also supporting Strange because of Trump's endorsement, and also because Moore, who's leading in some polls, is "too conservative" for her.
"I think he'd bring a lot more fighting, and there's enough of that going on," she said.
