Roy Moore “Seriously Considering” 2020 Alabama Senate Race Against Sen. Doug Jones
Alabama Republican Roy Moore on Friday, teased at a possible 2020 run for Senate, after his 2017 campaign was over shadowed by allegations of sexual assault of minors when he was in his 30’s.
On the Christian American Family Radio Show, Focal Point, Moore said he is “seriously considering” a 2020 run.
“I think the [2017 race] was stolen. I think that’s been pronounced in the national newspapers – The New York Times, The Washington Post even has recognized there was a disinformation campaign going on in September of 2017 by forces outside of Alabama that spent a lot of money not regulated by the FEC in trying to dissuade Republicans from voting and encourage and enrage Democrats.”
Moore was defeated by former federal prosecutor, Democratic Senator Doug Jones. Jones defeated Moore by a slim margin in a special election for the Senate position left by Jeff Sessions when he was elected Attorney General. Jones is the first Alabama Democrat to win a Senate seat in 25 years.
Nine woman came out in 2017 with allegations against Moore, ranging from inappropriate flirting to sexual assault of minors. Moore repeatedly denied the allegations and sued four of his accusers on claims of libel and slander.
Someone get in there and poll Roy Moore for the 2020 #ALSen GOP primary vs. Bradley Byrne.
