Republican candidates in the U.S. Senate race in Alabama crisscrossed the state Saturday, hoping to sway undecided voters before the election Tuesday.
A primary in which a sitting senator is seeking election is typically little more than a formality. But this is not a typical political year, and this is no typical race.
President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., are backing GOP Sen. Luther Strange in the special election to fill the seat of Alabama GOP Sen. Jeff Session, who earlier this year became U.S. attorney general.
Strange, a former state attorney general, was appointed to the seat in February.
