ALABAMA: Roy Moore Announces 2020 US Senate Bid

The Birmingham News reports:

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore announced Thursday he is running for U.S. Senate in 2020, two years after narrowly losing a bid for the seat to Democratic Sen. Doug Jones amid allegations of sexual misconduct with teenagers.

Moore, who was kicked off the bench twice, made the official announcement at a press conference in Montgomery with his wife Kayla by his side.

“Why is there such a hatred to somebody running? Is it because I believe in God and the right of a baby in the womb to have a life? Are these things embarrassing to you?,” Moore said referring to recent comments by national leaders against this pending candidacy.
