Former White House aide Sebastian Gorka is joining a little-known group known as the “MAGA Coalition,” Axios reported early Tuesday.

The news outlet said Gorka will serve as the group’s “chief strategist,” and his first appearance for the group will be at rally in Montgomery, Ala., on Thursday to support former Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy Moore’s Senate bid. Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin will also be featured at the fundraiser, according to Axios. 

{mosads}Moore is running against Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) in the GOP primary runoff. Former White House strategist Stephen Bannon, whom Gorka worked for at the White House, is reportedly backing Moore. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his allies have thrown their weight behind Strange, who is viewed as the establishment candidate by his opponents in the initial Republican primary and by Moore.

Gorka offered his resignation to President Trump last month, a move that followed Bannon’s departure.
