FarmPAC-endorsed candidate and incumbent U.S. Sen. Luther Strange will face former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Sept. 26 in a Republican runoff primary election to fill the Senate seat Jeff Sessions vacated earlier this year.
In the primary Aug. 15, Strange received 32.8 percent of votes, while Moore garnered 38.9 percent.
The Republican nominee will face Doug Jones, a former U.S. attorney who won the Democratic primary.
Former Gov. Robert Bentley appointed Strange as senator when Sessions became U.S. attorney general in February.
FarmPAC is the state political action committee of the Alabama Farmers Federation.
