Bannon Breaks With Trump, Backs Moore In Alabama Senate Race

0

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon is reportedly throwing his support behind former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in the GOP primary runoff next month for the special Senate election, breaking with President Trump’s preferred candidate.

According to Politico, Bannon announced his backing of Moore during a meeting with the Conservative Action Project and presented the support as a specific rebuke of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) rather than Trump.

Both McConnell and Trump have endorsed Sen. Luther Strange to win a full term to the Alabama seat vacated when Jeff Sessions was confirmed as attorney general. zread more at The Hill.
