For weeks speculation has been rampant that former state Supreme Court Chief Justice and 2017 failed US Senate candidate Roy Moore is contemplating another run next year. Mr. Moore now confirms that he is considering again becoming a statewide federal candidate and says he will make a decision in the next few weeks.
President Trump has publicly urged Judge Moore not to run, and his input has proven definitive in many Republican primaries. Already in the race are US Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-Mobile), former Auburn University football coach Tommy Tuberville, state Auditor Jim Zeigler, and state Rep. Arnold Mooney (R-Indian Springs/Birmingham). The latter man was chairman of Rep. Mo Brooks’ (R-Huntsville) 2017 Senate campaign and decided to run himself when the Congressman announced he would not launch another statewide campaign next year.
