Steve Bannon to campaign with Roy Moore next week

0

Former White House chief strategist and current Breitbart News chief Steve Bannon says he’s heading back to the Heart of Dixie next week to campaign for U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore.

Bannon will join Moore at a rally in Fairhope, Ala., Tuesday, Dec. 5, just one week before Moore will face-off against Democrat Doug Jones in the Dec. 12 special election for Attorney General Jeff Sessions‘ former seat.
“I look forward to standing with Judge Moore and all of the Alabama deplorables in the fight to elect him to the United States Senate and send shockwaves to the political and media elites,” Bannon told CNN,

Bannon’s decision to visit the Yellowhammer State comes in the wake of Monday’s White House announcement that President Donald Trump will not travel to Alabama and campaign for Moore, in light of the allegations against him.

Moore has been under fire since The Washington Post published an explosive report on Nov. 9 with the accounts of four women who claim he sexually pursued them when he was in his 30s and they were in their teens. Since that time, a total of nine women have levied accusations against Moore. The news has caused rapid fallout from dozens within the Republican Party who have called on him to withdraw his name from next month’s special election if the allegations are true.

Following the first allegations, Bannon said, “Until I see additional evidence on Judge Moore, I’m standing with him.”
