I am especially grateful for the support of President Trump and Vice President Pence, as well as the strong example set by my friends Richard Shelby and Jeff Sessions.

Moore, the former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, resigned in disgrace from the court earlier this year after he was suspended for continuing to enforce the state's unconstitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

Despite his loss, unusual made sure to thank the president and vice president for their support during his election night speech in his hometown of Homewood.

After Roy Moore's resounding victory over Sen. Luther Strange, 55 percent to 45 percent, The New York Times reported. Roy, WIN in Dec!

Moore claimed victory by a margin of 57 percent to 43 percent when the Associated Press called the result at about 9:30 p.m. ET.

There are 34 Senate seats up for re-election in 2018.

Moore framed his win as a blow to the establishment.

He ran against the establishment, he defeated the establishment, he would not compromise with the establishment.

"I think that this is an extension of what we saw past year, which is that when some voters have a chance to vote against Washington and the establishment, they will do exactly that, especially after we haven't had a lot of legislative victories", Conway told CNN. "We look forward to Judge Moore's help enacting that agenda when he arrives". He even won the endorsement of Steve Bannon, the president's former chief strategist. President Trump also offered his congratulations and good wishes to the victor Judge Roy Moore.

"He doesn't just say he's going to do this", Mowery said.

She cast Tuesday's vote as a validation of Trump's agenda and strategy, rather than a repudiation of the person he'd endorsed. "They think you're nothing but rubes".

Gorka said odd is part of the Washington establishment "swamp" that Trump promised to drain.

Losing campaigns often have a variety of people to blame and excuses for their loss, but it is worth pondering if the unusual campaign has a legitimate beef.

President Trump threw his support for the GOP nomination behind Sen.

Prior to removing references to Strange, Trump deleted a tweet congratulating Moore and directing the Alabama judge to "WIN in Nov!" Luther Strange in the primary Tuesday night, is known for being anti-establishment.

They've led him astray this time, straight into embarrassingly supporting Loser Luther.

Ellison said that unlike Moore, he doesn't want state-mandated religion. During a Fox & Friends interviews on Wednesday morning, Moore dismissed Trump's support for his primary opponent, saying "I don't think the president knew me".

Moore was twice elected chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court and twice removed from those duties. However, he was again voted out in 2016 when he refused to obey the same-sex marriage rule.

Strange's appointment to the interim seat by former Gov. Robert Bentley turned off some voters. Throughout the Senate race, odd had been dogged by criticisms of accepting the appointment from a scandal-battered governor when his office was in charge of corruption investigations.

Due to Alabama's heavily-Republican electoral leaning, Democratic challenger Doug Jones has a steep uphill battle to stop Moore from winning the Senate seat.

Moore is as outspoken as they come. He successfully convicted two Klansmen who had long escaped justice for murdering four black girls in a church bombing in 1963.
