MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

President Donald Trump announced his endorsement of Sen. Luther Strange in the upcoming senate election via Twitter Tuesday night.

"Senator Luther Strange has done a great job representing the people of the Great State of Alabama," Trump said in the tweet. "He has my complete and total endorsement!"

Following the endorsement, Sent. Strange issued his own statement.

"I am so deeply honored and humbled to receive the endorsement and support of our President, Donald Trump. It is an honor to work hard beside him to deliver upon his promises to the American people. Together, we will continue efforts to fill our courts with conservative judges, repeal Obamacare, offer tax relief to hard working Americans, lift this heavy burden of government regulations, rebuild our military and build that wall on our southern border.  Our country stood upon a precipice last November, but the American voters spoke out loud and clear, tired of a stagnant economy, political correctness and politicians who don't listen. President Trump's election and hard work has given millions of people hope again and I'm proud to stand beside him to make America great again."

 The presidential endorsement comes as some polls have suggested that Strange is in a tight race with former state chief justice Roy Moore and Rep. Mo Brooks, a member of the House Freedom Caucus.

The Democratic and Republican primaries for the senate election are both next Tuesday on Aug. 15. The general election will be in December.
