Roy Moore has beaten out Luther Strange in the race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.
With about two-thirds of the polls reporting, Moore led Strange 56 percent to 44 percent.
Strange conceded the race and called Moore to “wish him the best,” he said during a speech at his after-election gathering.
Moore in a victory speech that sounded much like a sermon gave the credit for his win to God.
He said he will support President Trump even though Trump did not support him – provided that Trump’s actions are constitutional.
“We want to bring our country back to its greatness, and we can and we will,” Moore said.
Moore will face Democratic nominee Doug Jones in the general election Dec. 12.
