State Rep. Barry Moore (R) said he will ask former Trump strategist Steve Bannon for an endorsement in his primary challenge of Rep. Martha Roby (R).

“I plan to reach out to him to see if there’s an interest, to see if they’re willing to come on board to help us,” said Moore who is challening Roby “in part over her past criticism of President Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign. ‘It would be a good shot in the arm. It would be good for us to have him involved if at all possible.’” (McClatchy)

Roby beat her 2016 primary challenger Becky Gerritson (R) by 39 points.
