Dueling Rallies Show Republican Rift in Alabama Senate Race

While President Donald Trump campaigns for Luther Strange, many of his supporters back Roy Moore in the run-up to Tuesday's vote.

People recite the Pledge of Allegiance at a rally for Luther Strange, the establishment-backed Republican candidate for Senate, at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville, Alabama on Sept. 22, 2017. Strange is in a runoff race against former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore for the now-empty seat once filled by Jeff Sessions.
