Trump to campaign for Alabama Sen. Luther Strange

Congressman Mo Brooks endorses Roy Moore at Huntsville rally

Trump announced the upcoming campaign appearance while spending the weekend at his New Jersey golf club.

Trump tweeted Saturday that he will campaign for unusual in Huntsville, Alabama, on September 23.

President Trump made the announcement through his Twitter page Saturday.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is launching an advertising push on behalf of Luther Strange in Alabama's heated U.S. Senate runoff. "Big Luther" is a great guy who gets things done!"

Mo Brooks is throwing his support behind former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore in the state's Senate primary runoff against Sen.

Brooks took 20% of the vote in the initial ballot August 15, while odd received 33% and Moore 39%.

Strange, the state's former attorney general, in February was appointed by former Gov. Robert Bentley to the Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions.

At a Saturday rally in Huntsville, Brooks said he has voted by absentee ballot for Moore.

Brooks declined to endorse either candidate after losing in August.

The Strange campaign could not immediately provide details of the visit. Emerson College conducted a telephone poll which puts Democrat Doug Jones in a statistical dead heat with either unusual or Moore.
