President Donald Trump and Alabama U.S. Senate Republican nominee Roy Moore will headline the Values Voter Summit this weekend in Washington, D.C.
The Values Voter Summit, hosted by the Family Research Council, is one of the largest annual gatherings of grassroots conservatives in the nation.
“I am honored to speak to such a principled group of conservative activists and leaders," said Moore in a news release Friday. "President Trump’s election in 2016 was the start of a movement to make America great again by strengthening our military and securing our borders, cutting wasteful government spending, and unleashing job growth by simplifying the tax code and reducing regulations on businesses.“
"It is a great privilege to speak at the Values Voter Summit and I appreciate President Trump’s strong support for our conservative cause.”
The former Chief Justice of the the Alabama Supreme Court will speak on Friday afternoon while Trump will address the gathering later in the evening.
“I've devoted my entire career to defending the Constitution, supporting religious liberty, and protecting the sanctity of life,” Moore said in the news release.
“I am eager to continue that fight as a United States senator, if the people of Alabama decide to send me to Washington on December 12. I look forward to working with President Trump to drain the swamp and put the people of America first again.”
Trump endorsed Moore's opponent, incumbent U.S. Sen. and former state Attorney General Luther Strange, during the Republican primary. Moore will face the Democratic nominee, former U.S. Attorney Doug Jones, in the special election.
