Steve Bannon speaks to the crowd prior to Roy Moore greeting the crowd of supporters after defeating incumbent Luther Strange. Bannon said Moore's victory could embolden other grassroots challengers to try to unseat well-funded Republican incumbents in next year's congressional elections. "You're going to see in state after state people that follow the model of Judge Roy Moore, that do not need to raise money from the elites," he said at Moore's victory party.

A Moore supporter stands for the national anthem. Moore, 70, first lost his seat on the Alabama Supreme Court for refusing to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the courthouse and a second time for defying the Supreme Court's decision to legalize same-sex marriage. The race exposed rifts between the Republican party's conservative base and its moneyed establishment -- and within Trump's inner circle. Trump and Vice President Mike Pence appeared with Strange at rallies in the race's closing days and a political group affiliated with Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell spent close to $9 million on his behalf.

Roy Moore enters the stage to make his victory speech. Moore's uncompromising style could bring a new level of turbulence to the Senate, where Republicans have struggled to reach consensus on tax and spending issues and have failed repeatedly to roll back Obamacare. But Moore said he would back the president. "Don't let anybody in the press think that because he supported my opponent I do not support him and support his agenda," Moore said.
