Whoever wins the Alabama special Senate election, he won’t affect the outcome of the tax debate this year, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday.

Mr. McConnell said Sen. Luther Strange, the incumbent who lost the GOP primary earlier this year, will serve through the end of this session.

That means no matter the winner in the special election — GOP candidate Roy Moore or Democrat Doug Jones — he won’t affect the outcome of the tax debate.

“Senator Strange is going to be here through the end of the session,” Mr. McConnell said.

With Mr. Strange, the GOP garnered 51 votes for its version of the tax-cut bill.
