Former Alabama Chief Justice and U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore shakes hands with supporters after he speaks at a rally, Monday, Sept. 25, 2017, in Fairhope, Ala.

Here are the latest results from the Alabama Senate primary runoff between Sen. Luther Strange and former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Strange and Moore are fighting for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat once occupied by Jeff Sessions, who became US attorney general earlier this year.

The race culminated on Tuesday into a battle of diverging ideals within the GOP, with Strange having received vocal support from President Donald Trump and establishment Republicans like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Moore has earned support of some conservatives who backed Trump in the 2016 election, including Sarah Palin and Republican former Sen. Jim DeMint. Trump's housing secretary Ben Carson came out in support of Moore last week. Populist agitator and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon also fell on the side opposite of Trump.

Moore appeared to be leading Strange after polls closed in Alabama on Tuesday night, prompting Trump to worry whether he had backed the wrong candidate, according to sources cited by Politico.
