Roy Moore to announce decision on U.S. Senate bid Thursday

With just over 250 days until Alabama Republicans head to the polls to cast a ballot who they want representing them on the general election ballot against presumably incumbent Sen. Doug Jones (D-Mountain Brook), another well-known candidate could be adding his name to the list of choices.

Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who came up short against Jones in a 2017 special election contest, could be taking another shot at a U.S. Senate bid.

If Moore does enter the fray, he will be joining already declared candidates, which include U.S. Rep. Bradley Byrne (R-Fairhope), former Auburn head football coach Tommy Tuberville, State Rep. Arnold Mooney and others, and possible candidate Alabama Secretary of State John Merrill.

In a statement provided to Yellowhammer News, Kayla Moore, wife of Roy Moore, said to expect an announcement on Thursday.

“Judge Moore will be making an announcement about his decision regarding the senate race on Thursday,” she said. “Details forthcoming. Enjoy the Trump rally!”
