Suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore Announces Run for U.S. Senate
MONTGOMERY, Ala. — Suspended Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, also known as the “Ten Commandments judge,” announced on Wednesday that he is resigning from the state Supreme Court to run for the United States Senate.
“I share the vision of President Donald Trump to make America great again,” Moore stated, but added, “Before we can make America great again, we’ve got to make America good again.”
“Our first president in his farewell address said very simply, ‘The virtue of morality is a necessary spring of popular government. Who, that is a sincere friend to it, can look with indifference on attempts to shake the foundation of the fabric?'” he noted.
Moore outlined that the foundations of America are being shaken on a variety of levels, including in matters of protecting the unborn, the institution of marriage and religious liberty. He said that there also needs to be a return back to the original meaning of the U.S. Constitution.
