One Day Mo(o)re: Strange Welcomes Pence, Focuses on Moore’s Record on Crime

With one day left before Alabama voters pick between Luther Strange and Roy Moore for the Republican nomination for Jeff Sessions’ Senate seat, both candidates are busy stumping for votes.

Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) and firebrand ex-Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore will face off on Tuesday in a runoff election being watched closely by both Alabama and Washington, D.C.

Vice President Mike Pence is in Alabama on Monday to campaign for Strange. The Washington Examiner reported:

The White House announced Pence would be traveling to Alabama to speak at a rally for Strange at 7:30 p.m. local time on Monday. Strange faces former Alabama Supreme Court Judge Roy Moore the next day in the primary.

Meanwhile, the conservative news site LifeZette reported on Monday morning that Strange is focusing on Moore’s record on crime in the final days before the runoff.

From Brendan Kirby:

Strange, who served as the state attorney general before his appointment to the Senate in February, unveiled a new ad last week raising questions about a 2015 Supreme Court case in which Moore dissented from an opinion upholding the conviction of a teenager accused of molesting a young child at a day care center in Jefferson County.

NTK Network reported on the ad last week:

Moore will be leaning, in part, on a British man to make the case for him in the final night of the campaign. ‘Brexiteer’ Nigel Farage will speak at a rally in support of Moore on Monday night.
