My VIP for this week is Judge Roy Moore who is campaigning to fill the Senate seat vacated when then-Senator Jeff Sessions became the Attorney General. Conservatives need the Judge to win the election because he is far from being a part of the “Establishment.” Therefore Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is supporting the Judge’s opposition.
Bob Unruh at World Net Daily seems to totally support the Judge and gives the following glowing recommendations for him.
So imagine adding to that mix a senator who’s been a state Supreme Court chief justice, who describes Islam as a “false religion,” who insists marriage is the union of one man and one woman, and declares America is a nation that owes its founding and survival to Almighty God.
Unruh continues his article by further sharing his reasons why the Judge should be elected to replace Sessions.
He’s the judge who was pushed out of the state Supreme Court 15 years ago after he installed a monument to the Ten Commandments, the foundation of American law, at the state judicial building.
A decade later, voters put him back in the same job.
Then, he was removed again for defending the state’s law establishing traditional marriage, even though technically he likely didn’t do anything wrong and was the victim of a campaign by his enemies, including the Southern Poverty Law Center.
And now, despite the millions of dollars being spent by Sen. Luther Strange, a former state official appointed to replace Sessions until the election, and his own spending of a mere $100,000, he’s in a statistical dead heat.
This writer hopes that the voters in Alabama support Judge Roy Moore and bring another conservative to the Senate. He is supported by the Alabama Republican Assembly who describes Moore as “a proven fighter, personally and politically, and will stand strong for government that abides by the Constitution.
The election is schedule for August 15 with nine candidates. Senator Strange is now polling at 35 percent, Moore at 33 percent, Rep. Mo Brooks at 16 percent, and the others far behind. If no candidate wins 50 percent of the votes on the day of the election, there will be a run off between the top two candidates. Two-thirds of registered voters in the state are Republicans.
