Who Is Roy Moore, The Republican Senate Nominee Backed By Nigel Farage?

Donald Trump: The President may have spent Tuesday night/Wednesday morning deleting tweets in support of unusual, but that won't change the fact that he was for the loser in this race. "He ran a spirited campaign centered around a dissatisfaction with the progress made in Washington".

Moore, a former chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, seems to keep score on everything.

Roy Moore won a landslide victory against Sen.

Then there's the fact that Moore was backed by former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, who plans to back more anti-establishment candidates for other Congressional seats. "This is total embarrassment'".

"I think that this is an extension of what we saw a year ago, which is that when some voters have a chance to vote against Washington and the establishment, they will do exactly that, especially after we haven't had a lot of legislative victories", Conway told CNN. He's twice been taken off the bench for breaking the law, first by erecting a monument to the 10 Commandments inside the state's judicial building when he was chief justice of the state's top court, which was clearly in violation of the Constitution.

Unusual told his supporters that "we wish (Moore) well going forward".

"Even with President Donald Trump asking his backers to cast a ballot for Sen". "Remember, these are the same people that have tried to destroy Donald J. Trump from the first day he announced for office". "If somebody else wins, I will tell you, that's gonna be a very tough race". Luther Strange in a primary runoff for Alabama's open senate seat on Tuesday.

'I think that when he gets to know me that he'll understand that I do support a very conservative agenda for this country.

Moore is outspoken about the need for religion and morality in public life.

The disgraced justice had issued a string of orders declaring the US Supreme Court ruling on equal marriage "doesn't apply" in Alabama due to state anti-gay laws, and ordered probate judges to enforce a gay marriage ban.

Did they call him a "bigot"? Then he was suspended again a year ago (having been re-elected to the bench in 2012) for violating judicial ethics multiple times - refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses and lobbying governors across the country to pass a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman. The House committee restarted its work after Strange's appointment.

"I appreciate Judge Moore's standards", White said.

The special election is to replace Jeff Sessions, who became U.S. Attorney General early this year.

Unusual was bogged down by questions surrounding his appointment to the seat by then-Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley.

During a rally for odd in Alabama on Friday, Trump said that while unusual would have a better chance of beating Jones, the president would campaign for Moore if he won.

"Since the beginning of this race, I have focused on issues that matter to the people of Alabama: health care, jobs, and the economy", Jones said in a statement Tuesday night.

Jones, Moore's Democratic opponent, is a former US attorney and well-known for prosecuting members of the Ku Klux Klan involved in the 1963 bombing of a Baptist church in Birmingham that killed four young girls. Jones prosecuted and won convictions for two Ku Klux Klan members for their roles in the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham that killed four little girls.
