Sebastian Gorka Returns to Back Roy Moore For Senate in Alabama — In Defiance of Trump
Fresh off his unceremonial booting from the White House, “Dr” Sebastian Gorka seems to have found a new home. Seemingly from the mists of thin air, the MAGA Coalition insists that they are a “national network of over 5,000,000 America First citizens who share in the belief that both our national parties have taken America down the wrong path” and promises to “compete against globalist corporatists interests.”
Ok — sure.
And as his first act, the good doctor is being sent to Alabama to headline a rally for Roy Moore on Thursday. The controversial former Chief Justice of the Alabama supreme court is running against the state’s incumbent — but unelected — Senator Luther Strange in a nasty primary runoff.
The move puts in him direct conflict with Donald Trump, who has vociferously backed Strange.
Luther Strange of the Great State of Alabama has my endorsement. He is strong on Border & Wall, the military, tax cuts & law enforcement.

Wow, Senator Luther Strange picked up a lot of additional support since my endorsement. Now in September runoff. Strong on Wall & Crime!

Senator Luther Strange has done a great job representing the people of the Great State of Alabama. He has my complete and total endorsement!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 9, 2017
Big day in Alabama. Vote for Luther Strange, he will be great!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 15, 2017
Strange was appointed to the seat after Jeff Sessions vacated it to become Attorney General, has struggled to connect to the state’s voters. He has nevertheless done his best to yoke himself to Trump even calling his election a “biblical miracle”
Gorka will also be joined by reality show star and occasional governor Sarah Palin.
It’s expected to be an uphill battle for Strange, who polls indicate is trailing.
