Strange, tapped to fill Jeff Sessions' Senate seat in February, has backing from both President Donald Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, as well as a pro-McConnell super PAC.

Trump waves to a crowd of tens of thousands in Mobile, Alabama. Luther Strange and challenger Roy Moore will face off in a debate next week.

Senior Republicans have spent weeks attempting to persuade Trump to get behind Strange's campaign, according to Politico. "'Big Luther' is a great guy who gets things done!"

The president will make his visit to Alabama just days before the GOP runoff between unusual and Judge Roy Moore, the top candidates in last month's Republican primary. The far more interesting battle is shaping up between the candidate's big name supporters - President Donald Trump vs. his recently departed chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Moore was the top vote-getter in the August GOP primary.

Odd faces former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in the September 26 runoff for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate. This puts Bannon and the president on the opposite side of this telling primary.

The Hill first reported Moore's remarks during a campaign speech on Sunday, citing footage provided by "a Republican monitoring the race" between Moore and appointed Sen.

Some have even suggested that the widening rift in the Republican Party could spell the end of decades of two-party dominance of the American political system, with populists possibly breaking off to form a party that would challenge the GOP from the right. The group is expected to host a pro-Moore rally attended by Sarah Palin.
