Trump tweeted in support of odd many, many times - in tweets that he has just deleted - and even campaigned for him in person this past week. "He ran a spirited campaign centered around a dissatisfaction with the progress made in Washington".
US President Donald Trump's pick in the AlabamaRepublican Senate runoff crashed to defeat Tuesday against a populist former judge, likely sending shockwaves through establishment Washington and denting the president's influence over his restless political base.
In order to fill the Senate seat that Attorney General Jeff Sessions held for 20 years, Moore must pass one more test: a special election in December against the Democratic candidate, Doug Jones, a former federal prosecutor.
Late Tuesday, Trump sought to erase his backing of odd, deleting a series of tweets encouraging Alabamans to vote for the Republican senator.
Moore, propelled by evangelical voters, consolidated support from a number of anti-establishment forces, including the pro-Trump Great America Alliance and Bannon.
Gorka said odd is part of the Washington establishment "swamp" that Trump promised to drain. "I think there was a sense that 'we'll show them". He's twice been taken off the bench for breaking the law, first by erecting a monument to the 10 Commandments inside the state's judicial building when he was chief justice of the state's top court, which was clearly in violation of the Constitution.

Moore is as sui generis a product of the Yellowhammer State as white barbecue sauce and Bear Bryant. However, he was again voted out in 2016 when he refused to obey the same-sex marriage rule. Jeff Sessions became the US attorney general.
Strange's appointment to the interim seat by former Gov. Robert Bentley turned off some voters. Democrats hope that he could woo some moderate Republicans and independents who can't stomach Moore's extreme-right views to his side, but given the conservative nature of the state, Moore still remains the favorite.
Jones is a former USA attorney best known for prosecuting the Klansmen who killed four girls in a 1963 church bombing. Luther Strange, the defeated candidate and interim senator whom the president endorsed in the race.
"No", Jones responded. "I'm not in favor of anything that is going to infringe on a woman's right and her freedom to choose". 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.
