CIllizza: Finish this sentence: “_________” will win next Tuesday. Now, explain.

Lyman: “Donald Trump.”

Both Strange and Moore have promised to fight for the President’s agenda, even when that agenda leads to votes that could have an adverse effect on the state. For instance, every (Affordable Care Act) repeal bill contains some measure of cuts to Medicaid, which covers 1 million Alabamians — mostly children, elderly and the disabled — and serves as the cornerstone for health care in the state. Neither Strange nor Moore have shown any hesitation in supporting ACA repeal bills with those cuts. Should one or the other beat Democrat Doug Jones in the general election December 12, Trump will likely have an automatic vote for anything he proposes.
