ALABAMA: Roy Moore To Hold Wednesday Press Event, May Announce Run In Special US Senate Election reports:

Suspended Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore will announce his future plans on the steps of the State Capitol on Wednesday. At a press conference three days ago, Moore said he would reveal whether he would run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Luther Strange, who was appointed by former Gov. Robert Bentley to replace Jeff Sessions.

Moore interviewed with Bentley for the Senate vacancy before Bentley appointed Strange. On Wednesday, a special Alabama Supreme Court upheld Moore’s suspension from office for the remainder of his term without pay.

The party primaries for the special election for the U.S. Senate seat are scheduled for Aug. 15. The general election is Dec. 12. Strange, the former Alabama attorney general, and state Rep. Ed Henry, R-Hartselle, have announced they are seeking the seat.

Others have said they are considering entering the Republican primary. Among them are Senate President Pro Tem Del Marsh, Sens. Slade Blackwell and Trip Pittman and former state Rep. Perry Hooper Jr.

Moore was first booted from the bench in 2003 after refusing to remove a Ten Commandment monument from the state judicial building, but voters returned him to the state Supreme Court in 2012. He lost the Alabama GOP gubernatorial primaries in 2006 and 2010.
