Nine candidates - including Luther Strange, appointed by Alabama's governor in the interim - are running in Tuesday's primary to fill the seat vacated by Sessions when he was named attorney general, and Moore leads them all. The most recent public polling shows Moore ahead with 35 percent, unusual in second at 23 percent, and Brooks at 20 percent. To win outright, a candidate has to get at least 50 percent of the vote.

Unusual became senator in February following Jeff Sessions' confirmation as attorney general, and his campaign has been supported by the Senate Leadership Fund, a Super PAC tied to McConnell. He tweeted Thursday, "Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed Repeal & Replace for 7 years, couldn't get it done".
