In a last-ditch attempt to spur GOP establishment favorite Luther Strange to victory in Alabama's special election primary, President Donald Trump tweeted support for Strange multiple times Tuesday - only to delete his tweets after Strange lost the primary to former Judge Roy Moore. The Swamp did so because they are reportedly terrified that if Moore wins tonight, other grassroots candidates will challenge, in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin's words, Swamp creatures "in their own states". Luther Strange (R-Ala.) at a campaign rally at HealthSouth Aviation on Sunday in Birmingham, Ala.

When Former Sen. Jeff Sessions became Attorney General to Trump Administration, Luther Strange took the vacated seat. May God be with him and may God continue to bless Alabama and the United States of America.

A twist in the tale happened when the Alabama Elections results were announced late Tuesday night. Sounds like a really great guy who ran a fantastic race.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Moore received 262,204 votes (54.6 percent) compared to Strange's 218,066 votes (45.4 percent).

Donald Trump, who sided with mainstream Republicans in backing Moore's defeated primary opponent Luther Strange, has now vowed to throw his support behind the GOP candidate.

Leading up to the runoff election to fill the seat vacated after Jeff Sessions became attorney general, Trump tweeted his support three times for "Big Luther" and tried to rally Alabama voters to support unusual.

On the outskirts of Montgomery, 76-year-old Air Force retiree John Lauer said Mr Trump's endorsement swayed him to vote for Mr Strange on Tuesday. "Roy, WIN in Dec!" he wrote.

Former chief Trump strategist Steve Bannon introduced Moore at his victory party, saying a vote for Moore was a vote for Mr. Trump. It was during that rally Trump admitted he "might have made a mistake" with his endorsement.

"And I'm calling him".

"The friends I've made there will be lifelong friends", he said.
