Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is once again joining Republican U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore on an Alabama campaign stop one week before the special election against Democrat Doug Jones.

Bannon, who was a prominent supporter of Moore during the Republican primary, has been more muted during the general election, especially after reports of sexual misconduct allegations surfaced in November. He announced late in November he would once again join the former Alabama Chief Justice on the campaign trail.

Bannon will appear with Moore in Fairhope at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Oak Hollow Farm. Fairhope is located in Baldwin County on the eastern shoreline of Mobile Bay.

Some Republicans, including President Donald Trump, are warming up to Moore weeks after the initial allegations surfaced. Trump tweeted his strongest endorsement of Moore Monday after most of his comments on the race were directed against Jones, who he also attacked on Twitter. He tied the Democratic nominee with the party's House and Senate leadership.

Trump has yet to announce a trip to Alabama, but he will be holding a rally in Pensacola, Florida Friday night. Pensacola is part of the television market that includes Mobile, Alabama, but it is unknown how much of Trump's rally will focus on the Alabama U.S. Senate race.

Jones' campaign made a stop in Fairfield in Jefferson County Tuesday.
