Moore: The right to recognize God will be a main factor in his Senate campaign
Thursday, former Chief Justice Roy Moore announced that he will be a candidate for the U.S. Senate. Moore told reporters that the right to recognize God ‚Äúwill be a main factor‚ÄĚ in his race for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Sen. Doug Jones.
Moore suggested that a lot of the establishment opposition to him from Washington D.C. is due to his having been removed from the Alabama Supreme Court for defending his Ten Commandments monument from the Alabama Supreme Court building.
‚ÄúA lot of them object to me because I was removed for displaying Ten Commandments,‚ÄĚ Moore said....
Alabama already has a good Democratic senator who we can hope will win again. We can hope that the Republicans to lose the control of the Senate.
But, if voters of Alabama do have to have a Republican in there, even Jeff Sessions would be an improvement over Moore. Sessions has proven that he can stand up to Trump on occasion, and he isn't a Dominionist either.
Also Moore is an unreconstructed Confederate ūüĎé

I was all in for Moore, but his political enemies, pretty much made him the poster man of dating younger girls, but it‚Äôs a southern thing,when my 88 year old uncle married his bride, she was 15 years old.

After Moore entered the race on Thursday, BeShears added, ‚ÄúEven if he‚Äôs completely innocent of the accusations that came to light in 2017, this move is indicative of a person whose judgment Alabamians should never trust, who is willing to turn yet another election cycle into a self-centered circus.‚ÄĚ Though she has not yet made a decision, BeShears likes a handful of the Republicans who‚Äôve already entered the race and is inclined to support most of them in a general election. ‚ÄúI hope Moore is relegated to the sidelines,‚ÄĚ she added....
