■ GOP law­mak­ers fin­ish their plan for a bal­anced bud­get con­ven­tion.

Las Vegas Review-Journal (Sunday) - - FRONT PAGE -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump an­nounced Satur­day that he will visit Alabama next week­end to sup­port Sen. Luther Strange in his slugfest Repub­li­can pri­mary with Roy Moore.

Trump, as he did with his first en­dorse­ment of Strange, made the an­nounce­ment via twit­ter. “I will be in Huntsville, Alabama, on Satur­day night to sup­port Luther Strange for Se­nate. ‘Big Luther’ is a great guy who gets things done!” Trump wrote. The Strange cam­paign could not im­me­di­ately pro­vide de­tails of Trump’s visit.

The pres­i­den­tial visit could be con­sid­ered some­thing akin to a cav­alry visit for Strange, who has been forced into a tight race with Moore, de­spite the back­ing of Trump and mil­lions in ad­ver­tis­ing dol­lars from al­lies of Se­nate Ma­jor­ity Leader Mitch McCon­nell.

The two Repub­li­cans are vy­ing for the U.S. Se­nate seat that pre­vi­ously be­longed to At­tor­ney Gen­eral Jeff Ses­sions. Moore led Strange in the first round of GOP vot­ing. The two face off in a Repub­li­can runoff on Sept. 26.
