Alabama Candidate for Senate Invokes Presidentís Slogan: Roy Moore Ties himself to Trump slogan

U.S. Senate candidate and former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore invokes President Donald Trump’s campaign slogan with and added twist.

Moore said, “I support President Trump’s agenda of making America great again. But I submit to you that we can only make America great again if we make America good,”

Moore’s campaign announcement spelled out what he believes isn’t good: divorce, abortion and same-sex marriage.

Moore made the statement in his downtown Montgomery office a day after announcing his bid for the Senate seat previously held by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

“I am definitely not establishment,” Moore said with a chuckle.

Former Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange currently holds the Senate seat. He was appointed by then-Gov. Robert Bentley, who resigned this month amid fallout from an alleged affair with a top staffer.

Bentley had planned for a 2018 Senate election which would have allowed his pick to hold the seat longer. But the state’s new governor, Kay Ivey, moved it up to this year.

He’ll become “establishment” once the UniParty gets a hold of him...just wait & see...assuming he’s even elected.

A fresh face who’s taken a stand twice as Chief Justice in AL and been removed from office for taking his stands...

Better than business as usual RINO’s who talk conservative down there.

You only take the most flak when you’re over the right target.

I think Moore is a totally different animal. He’s born enormous costs to his career and standing for principle when it would have been easy for him to remain silent and safe.

I don’t think he’ll change in office. I hope he’s elected to the senate.

You obviously have no clue what Moore is about or you would never even suggest that he would become establishment..Judge Moore is what God meant men to be.
