Palin, one of Moore's highest-profile endorsers, will travel to Alabama as part of a bus tour coordinated by the Great America PAC, a super PAC that is aiming to challenge incumbents who they believe aren't loyal to President Trump's agenda. Palin will likely stump for Moore at an event next week, according to Breitbart News, which first reported the plan.

Former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon has been advocating on Moore's behalf, and a top confidant, Andy Surabian, is now advising Great America. 

Moore and Strange have just a week and a half before the Sept. 26 runoff election decides the candidates’ fate. Moore continues to lead in all public polling, but Strange has a much larger war chest and allies like the Senate Leadership Fund that have been blanketing the airwaves with ads blasting Moore.
