Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon rallied voters in Alabama in support of U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore on Tuesday, just ahead of the state’s hotly-anticipated special election to fill the seat left vacant by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Bannon opened a campaign event for the candidate at Oak Hollow Farm in the city of Fairhope, where he blasted republican Senator Jeff Flake, among other establishment figures, for deterring President Donald Trump’s America first agenda.
The Brietbart News executive chairman reserved his sharpest criticism for former Utah Governor Mitt Romney, who he said lacked integrity over recent comments condemning Moore.
“Judge Roy Moore has more honor and integrity in that pinkie finger than your entire family has in its whole DNA,” Bannon said of the 2012 presidential candidate. “You hid behind your religion. You went to France to be a missionary while guys were dying in rice paddies in Vietnam. Do not talk to me about honor and integrity.”
Moore later took the stage, touting his military service, and promising to uphold the constitution. He went on to blame the establishment for failing to deliver on legislation reflecting President Trump’s agenda such as health care and immigration reform.
