Former Alaska Gov. and 2008 GOP Vice-Presidential nominee Sarah Palin is headed to the Yellowhammer State next week to help bring Judge Roy Moore across the finish line in his U.S. Senate bid.
Palin announced the visit to Alabama on her website, www.sarahpalin.com. The event will be part of a bus tour hosted by the Great America Alliance, a pro-Trump advocacy group.
“Palin plans to barnstorm Alabama the week prior to the special election to double down on her strongly stated support of Judge Moore,” a source familiar with Palin’s planning told Breitbart News.
“Gov. Palin is a conservative rock star and her presence in Alabama is sure to seal the deal for Judge Roy Moore,” said a second source familiar with Palin’s plans.
Palin endorsed Moore in late August after the race moved to a run-off.
“Glad he’s running and am honored to endorse Judge Roy Moore for the US Senate,” Palin said in a statement. “Judge Moore has shown he has what it takes to stand up to the out-of-touch political establishment.”
“The Judge has proven he’s not afraid of a fight for what is right, and he’s ready to take on DC’s swamp monsters and make America great again. We need more bold leaders like Judge Moore who will fight for all of us in the US senate,” Palin added.
The former Ala. Chief Justice responded to the endorsement by thanking Palin.
“I am honored to have the endorsement of Governor Sarah Palin,” said Moore. “Governor Palin has a strong record of speaking out for conservative causes and standing up to the Washington establishment. Having her support shows how conservatives across the country are uniting behind our campaign to send a message to Mitch McConnell and the Washington elites who are trying to buy this election.”
Neither the Moore campaign nor Sarah Palin have announced times and dates for the bus tour.
Moore faces sitting Sen. Luther Strange in a Republican primary runoff on Sept. 26 to fill the seat previously held by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The winner will move on to the Dec.12 general election.
