The now former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, who was permanently suspended last year from his position for refusing to follow the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on Same-Sex Marriage. Well he’s back and has announced today Wednesday April 26, he is running for U.S. Senate for Alabama.

As United States senator, I will continue to stand for rights and liberties not only of this state, but of the people as well,” said Moore during a press conference he held at the Alabama State Capitol.

Moore also tried to attach to President Trump’s coat tails by saying “I know I share the vision of our President Donald Trump to make America great again.” said Moore.

This is the man who once suggested publicly…“same-sex marriage will be the ultimate destruction of our country.”

He is attempting to win the seat vacated by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The primary is scheduled to take place on Aug. 15.

Will the citizens of Alabama really vote for this man to represent them in their state?

Polls conducted in Alabama indicates that 32 percent of Alabamians favor legalizing same-sex marriage. Nearly the same portion, 33 percent, strongly oppose it. Although Alabama comes in last the nation in support of same-sex marriage, the numbers clearly show that there is a divide among Alabama residents.
