Trump to visit Alabama in support of unusual

Luther Strange and challenger Roy Moore will face off in a debate next week.

U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, who finished third in Alabama's GOP Senate primary, has announced his support for Roy Moore in the heated runoff with Sen.

The endorsement by Brooks, a member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, could give Moore, a Republican, a timely boost in advance of the primary runoff coming up on September 26.

Trump wrote that, "I will be in Huntsville, Alabama, on Saturday night to support Luther Strange for Senate".

What's more, New York Times reporter Glenn Thrush said a White House spokesperson had denied the meeting account, "saying the position hasn't changed".

Trump made the announcement Saturday evening via twitter. WHNT also confirmed the announcement through the unusual for Senate campaign. "He has my complete and total endorsement!"

The two campaigns confirmed Saturday that Moore and odd will debate Thursday. "He ran a very honest campaign - perhaps most importantly, a very honorable campaign". The effort includes TV ads supporting odd as well as mail fliers featuring an endorsement from Alabama Senator Richard Shelby. Brooks said Moore will "fight for America" and criticized "malicious" tactics of a PAC supporting unusual.

Former vice president candidate Sarah Palin will be in the state this week to stump for Moore on a statewide bus tour.
