Via press release:
At a press conference on April 30, 2018 announcing the filing of a defamation lawsuit against my accusers, a reporter asked me if I had plans to run for public office again. “I have no plans at this time for running for anything,” I said. The reporter continued: “Not even Governor?” I answered: “No.”
The Associated Press then sent out a story, picked up by Time Magazine, that misquoted me as saying I had “no plans to run for any office again, including that of Alabama governor.”
To clarify, as I said in my response, I have no plans at this time to run for office. Nevertheless, plans change. If the opportunity arises to make a difference, I will have no reluctance to again run for political office, including that of Governor.

Alabama’s Roy Moore issues statement saying he isn’t ruling out running for office again in future, though he has no current plans to do so. “If the opportunity arises to make a difference, I will have no reluctance to again run for political office, including that of governor.”
