Alabama Senate Primary tonight. Polls close 8PM. Brooks, Strange, Moore (LIVE THREAD)
Decision Desk HQ ^ | August 15, 2017

Posted on 08/15/2017 4:01:37 PM PDT by SMGFan

Race Preview After weeks of ads, mostly on behalf of incumbent Senator Luther Strange, the votes start rolling in tonight after 8pm EDT. Strange faces strong competition from former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who has led him in the polling average by about 5-6 points, and from Huntsville Congressman Mo Brooks, who has trailed Strange in the average by a little over the same margin. If polling is correct, Strange and Moore will advance to the September 26th runoff. We anticipate the first results will roll in within thirty minutes of polls closing. We’ll have comparison charts and a county-by-county display above as those numbers roll in.

Polls where I live were not very crowded. Based on past elections I would say there was low turnout. Not sure who that benefits

President Trump continues to endorse Strange.. Strange indeed. Will the President continue to get involved in GOP primaries? I hope he does not.

Should make this the ‘live thread’. Gonna be fun.

http://www.alreporter.com/2017/08/15/low-turnout-inactive-status-stories-special-election-primaries/
“... Merrill said more than 340,000 Alabama voters were now listed as “inactive” in the Secretary of State’s database.
“That will not keep them from voting,” Merrill said. “They can absolutely update their information at their polling location, receive a ballot and vote. If they are not voting today, they can do it online again starting tomorrow.”
...predicted wouldn’t attract more than 15 percent of eligible voters, but would likely be closer to 10 percent “

Good for a giggle: Mo Brooks was listed as ‘inactive’.

Who is the most false one, just there to take votes away from Moore, so the other guy will win?

I was voter #268 in the small community of Santuck today. I voted for Roy Moore and know of several others voting for him. As a longtime supporter of Moore, I am very happy to finally see him run for the Senate. I have long felt he will make an excellent Senator.

no of course not , I will be surprised if the President opposes any GOP senators next year in their primary. When did a GOP President last oppose the incumbent Republican in the primary?

Ok so I have been torn on this election as all Alabama Rep Senate candidates make all the other Senators like look like leftists. I settled on Moore to send the Senate and House Leaders a message. Basically, kma. Ready for the results but betting on runoff between Moore and Strange.
