President Donald Trump has endorsed Alabama Republican Roy Moore, despite problems members of his own party have with the former judge. The Republican National Committee has given $170,000 to help elect Moore, in wake of Trump’s endorsement.
Prior to the endorsement, The RNC and Trump’s team set a rally outside of Alabama in Pensacola, Florida, which shares a media market with southern Alabama.
Moore has seen a slight slump in his poll numbers since multiple women have come forward saying he preyed on them as teens. More evidence surfaced that Moore was monitored at a local mall and Moore’s own words came back to haunt him, when it was discovered he met his wife as a teen.
Alabama votes Tuesday, December 12.
Watch the full rally below beginning at 7 p.m. EST:
Here are 11 things the Koch brothers didn’t want you to know

In 2012, their network of hardcore libertarian political donors spent $400 million on negative campaign ads intended to destroy government safety nets and defeat Democrats. They want to repeal Obamacare, dismantle labor unions, repeal any environmental law protecting clean water and air, roll back voting rights, privatize Social Security, stop a minimum wage increase and more. They don’t care about destroying the checks and balances in American democracy to get their way.

Put more bluntly the Washington Post reports, "Like an annual holiday gathering where the main goal is to get through the day without a family explosion, one of France’s main objectives as host of this weekend’s Group of Seven summit is to minimize the chances that President Trump will blow it up."
Ohio town faces ‘devastating’ factory closure as Trump’s promises to bring back manufacturing jobs fall through
The closure of a General Motors factory in Lordstown, Ohio is dealing a massive blow to a town that has been hit hard by globalization.
The Guardian reports that residents of Lordstown are reeling in the wake of the plant's closure, which further eroded the number of well paying jobs in the area.
“I think it’s devastating,” said Mark Sweetwood, the managing editor of the local Vindicator newspaper.
Local resident Patricia Galgozy tells the Guardian that she has watched the economic situation in the area deteriorate for decades now.
