The Left is gleeful that "alt-right" (in their minds) candidate Mo Brooks lost to establishment candidate and current Republican Senator, Luther Strange. What they failed to see was that, in this same race, Luther Strange lost to a very far-right candidate and former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore. Since no one received 50% of the vote, there'll be a run-off between Moore and Strange. Hopefully, Moore will win. Candidate Percent Votes Roy S Moore (Republican) 39.4% 156,447 Luther Strange (Republican) 32.1% 127,395 Mo Brooks (Republican) 19.7% 78,277 From Wikipedia: Roy Stewart Moore is an American politician and former judge. Moore was elected to the position of Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court in 2001, but removed from his position in November 2003 by the Alabama Court of the Judiciary for refusing to remove a monument of the Ten Commandments commissioned by him from the Alabama Judicial Building despite orders to do so by a federal court. Moore was again elected to be Chief Justice in 2013, but was suspended in May 2016 for directing probate judges to continue to enforce the state's ban on same-sex marriage despite the fact that it had been overturned; following an unsuccessful appeal, Moore resigned in April.
