Monday, Sept. 4, 2017, former Arkansas Governor and Republican Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee announced on his website that he has endorsed Roy Moore for U.S. Senate in the Republican special primary election runoff.
Huckabee said in a statement, “Frankly, I wasn’t planning on making an endorsement in the runoff in the GOP US Senate primary race. I don’t have personal relationships with either of the two candidates and neither of them supported me in either of my campaigns for President so I had no political obligation to get involved. I have good friends in Alabama whose support is split between Senator Luther Strange, who was ‘strangely’ appointed to the post by disgraced Governor Robert Bentley who made the appointment just as he was shown the door and resigned from office, and Judge Roy Moore, who is famous for his fights to preserve the display of the 10 Commandments on State property. But recent events made me realize that if the GOP establishment is horrified at the notion of Judge Moore being elected, then by all means, let’s hope the wonderful people of Alabama make Judge Moore into Senator Moore!”
