Steve Bannon to stump for Roy Moore next week

The former White House strategist has not been to Alabama since September.

Bannon's decision to visit the Heart of Dixie comes on the heels of the White House announcement Monday that President Donald Trump does not plan to campaign for Moore.

Bannon once called the embattled judge "one of the finest men in the country."

Moore, 70, has been battling allegations of sexual misconduct or inappropriate behavior when he was in his 30s by at least eight women, which he insists are "completely false." He has denied the allegations.

"I want to tell you first, this hurts me personally because besides my wife and my mother, and my only daughter, we have five granddaughters, and it hurts to think that people would attack your character like that after 40 years, and it's a little odd," Moore told a crowd of supporters Monday night at a rally in Henagar. "These allegations are completely false, they're malicious, specifically I do not know any of these women, nor have I ever engaged in sexual misconduct with any woman."

Shortly after the first allegations were made, Bannon said, "Until I see additional evidence on Judge Moore, I'm standing with him."
