Embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is about to get some much-needed help on the campaign trail next week from a key long-time supporter – Steve Bannon.
The former White House chief strategist and current Breitbart chief plans to make a campaign stop with Moore on December 5 in Fairhope, Alabama, exactly one week before he’s set to face off against Democrat Doug Jones for the Senate seat left open by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“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.
It’s going to be a tough, but winnable, race for Moore in what would traditionally be a solidly Republican Senate seat. Although the decades-old allegations against the former State Supreme Court Chief Justice, which have conveniently only come to light once he was safely past challenger Luther Strange in GOP primaries, initially resulted in a polling deficit to his Democratic challenger, Moore is now leading in two separate polls.
But he can use all the help he can get. While President Trump has vocalized his hope that Moore defeat his Democratic opponent, he has thus far declined to actively campaign with him in the state.
The last thing we need in Alabama and the U.S. Senate is a Schumer/Pelosi puppet who is WEAK on Crime, WEAK on the Border, Bad for our Military and our great Vets, Bad for our 2nd Amendment, AND WANTS TO RAISES TAXES TO THE SKY. Jones would be a disaster!

Moore’s deputy campaign manager, Hannah Ford, expressed the campaign’s appreciation of Bannon’s help.
“We are incredibly grateful for Bannon’s support,” said Ford.
Bannon has openly supported Moore even over his Republican primary opponent, Luther Strange, an endorsement that set him against prominent GOP establishment figures such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
Oddly enough, it seems that McConnell & Company would rather see a Democrat in the seat than someone who may or may not have done bad things forty years ago, yet has lived an exemplary life since then.
Steve Bannon, on the other hand, wants to see the Trump agenda enacted for all Americans, and realizes it’ll be that much tougher to accomplish with a Democrat senator from Alabama.
And yet again, he’s putting his ‘money’ where his mouth is.
