A primary win by “Ray” Moore would open Alabama’s U.S. Senate seat to Democrats, President Donald Trump told radio-hosts “Rick and Bubba” this morning. Trump called the popular syndicated radio show on Monday, just days after appearing at a Huntsville, Alabama rally for Republican Senate candidate Luther Strange.
“Luther Strange is going to be a great Senator,” Trump said. “He loves Alabama, he loves the state and he loves the country. He will absolutely win against the Democrat. Ray will have a hard time. If Luther wins, the Democrats will hardly fight. If Ray wins (Democrats) will pour in $30 million.”
When host Rick Burgess clarified that Moore’s first name was Roy and not Ray, Trump came back with why it’s “not a good sign” when the president doesn’t know your name. “I don’t know that much about Roy Moore,” Trump said, using the correct first name. “Roy Moore is going to have a very hard time getting elected against the Democrat. Against Luther, they won’t even fight.”
