The Human Rights Campaign announced that it was endorsing Democratic candidate Doug Jones for U.S. Senate.
Jones is running against former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore (R). Judge Moore has often clashed with the gay rights group over the years.
“Doug Jones has pledged to serve all Alabamians, including LGBTQ people,” said Eva Kendrick, HRC Alabama state director. “In this election, the choice between Roy Moore and Doug Jones could not be more stark. Moore has never passed up an opportunity to promote bigotry, division and extremism, while Doug Jones has staked his career on fairness, equality and a positive vision for Alabama’s future. HRC is proud to endorse Doug Jones and work to help him become the next U.S. Senator from the state of Alabama.”
