Nigel Farage, former leader of the U.K. Independence Party, will campaign in Alabama for U.S. Senate candidate and former state Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Farage will campaign at a rally in Fairhope, Ala., on Monday along with former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon as well as Phil Robertson from “Duck Dynasty,” according to The Guardian.

Farage, Bannon, and Robertson are all known supporters of President Donald Trump and disagree with the president, who has supported and campaigned for Moore’s opponent, Alabama Republican Sen. Luther Strange.

Farage and Trump are known to be close, Farage even spoke at a campaign event for Trump in Jackson, Miss., during his successful 2016 presidential bid. The two agree on many issues, such as opposing immigration and current free trade deals.

Trump endorsed Strange before the initial primary, a move that pleased Republican Senate leadership, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, but a lot of big names throughout his base disagree with Trump’s endoresment. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka support Moore and spoke at a campaign event for him Friday.
