ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Senator Luther Strange, appointed in February to the seat left open when Jeff Sessions became U.S. attorney general, is vying for Alabama's Senate seat against Roy Moore, an arch-conservative former state justice. President Trump rallied for Strange last Friday, while former chief strategist Steve Bannon and Trump's HUD secretary Ben Carson back Moore. Alabama voters are casting their ballots Tuesday. Moore finished ahead of Strange in last month's initial round of voting. But Trump said Strange, whom he endorsed, has the best chance of winning the general election. "Roy Moore is going to have a very hard time getting elected against the Democrat," Trump told an Alabama-based radio show on Monday. "Against Luther, they won't even fight." Alabama has not had a Democratic U.S. senator since 1997, and Trump carried the state by a margin of more than 25 percentage points in the presidential election last November.
