Luther Strange could have been campaigning for U.S. Senate as Big Luther Strange, Champion of the People.

Instead, Big Luther has shrunk into a weird hybrid Washington Swamp/Trump mini-me candidate, scrambling to keep his political career afloat.

Going into the U.S. Senate GOP primary runoff, one poll shows Roy Moore with a substantial lead over Strange. Another poll - a poll bought and paid for by Mitch McConnell’s Senate Leadership Fund, a group that’s already invested $8 million into the Strange primary campaign - says the race between Moore and Strange is a dead heat.

Big Luther’s poll numbers are kinda like the man himself. Both can be pulled back and forth like taffy, depending on the money. And stuff. Truth is — we all know the story — had he done the right thing, had he done his job as Alabama’s attorney general instead of snatching a coveted senate appointment from the sleazy governor he was investigating, Big Luther could have marched into the U.S. Senate as a champion. In a landslide.

Hold on to all your horses, folks. Four weeks to the Sept. 26. runoff. This thing can only get Moore/Strange.
