Breitbart executive chairman and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, long considered one of President Donald Trump’s key allies, will return to Fairhope, Alabama, next week to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. It’ll be Bannon’s second visit to the state to stump for Moore.

Bannon, since leaving the White House in August, has been mounting a nationwide effort to elect more populists and nationalists. Moore has become one of Bannon’s first projects. In September, Bannon traveled to Fairhope to campaign for Moore during the primary election. Bannon supported Moore over the establishment-embraced Sen. Luther Strange. Bannon’s right-leaning Breitbart news has been staunch in their alignment with Moore.
