The day before Alabamians head to the polls to vote in the U.S. Senate special election primary runoff, Vice President Mike Pence will make an appearance in the Yellowhammer State on Monday where he will campaign on behalf of Sen. Luther Strange.

According to POLITICO, “Pence will headline a get-out-the-vote rally for Strange,” in Birmingham, Ala. “Pence’s appearance underscores the last-minute boost the White House is trying to give Strange in a race where most recent polls have shown him trailing Moore.” The time and location of the event has yet to be made public.

Pence endorsed Strange back in August ahead of the primary election.

His visit follows President Donald Trump, who will be in Huntsville on Friday, previously scheduled for Saturday, to also stump for Strange.

Strange faces former Ala. Chief Justice Roy Moore in the primary runoff election to decide the GOP nominee for the rest of Jeff Sessions’ Senate term.

The winner faces Democratic nominee Doug Jones on the Dec. 12 general election.
