Tuesday, the Judge Roy Moore (R) for U.S. Senate campaign announced that it has received the endorsements of U.S. Senators Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, and Mike Lee, R-Utah.
The Moore campaign said that Sen. Rand Paul has served in the United States Senate for six years and has earned a reputation for his stalwart defense of the Constitution, limited government and fiscal conservatism.
“Judge Roy Moore has spent a lifetime defending and standing up for the Constitution while fighting for the people of Alabama. We need more people in Washington, D.C. that will stand on principle and defend the Constitution. I look forward to welcoming him to the Senate very soon,” Sen. Rand Paul said.
Judge Roy Moore recently traveled to meet with Sen. Paul in Washington.
“I am honored to receive the support and endorsement of Senator Rand Paul, for whom I have great admiration and respect as fellow defender of our conservative principles. I look forward to working with him in the United States Senate to defend our Constitution, secure our borders, fix our national debt, and allow the free enterprise system to create more jobs across Alabama and the nation,” Former Chief Justice Moore said.
Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, has served in the United States Senate for six years and has emerged as a tenacious advocate for the rule of law, principled conservatism and the Constitution as envisioned by our nation’s Founding Fathers.
“If there was ever a time to ensure that Republicans maintain a seat in the United States Senate, it is now. That is why I am proudly endorsing Judge Roy Moore for United States Senate. Alabamians have the chance to send a proven, conservative fighter to the United States Senate and I am more than ready to welcome a trusted ally,” Sen. Lee said.
“Judge Moore’s tested reputation of integrity is exactly what we need in Washington D.C. in order to pass conservative legislation and protect the liberty of all Americans,” Lee continued.
“Senator Lee has staunchly defended our constitutional liberties in the United States Senate and I am honored to receive his support and endorsement. I am eager to work alongside of him in the United States Senate to ensure our national security, cut government spending, and defend our Constitution,” Judge Moore said in a statement.
The Moore campaign is working to unite the Republican Party in Alabama after a divisive primary campaign. Recent polls by JMS Analytics and Cygnal show Judge Moore leading Clinton-era U.S. Attorney Doug Jones (D) by a solid eight percentage points.
Alabama Senate President Del Marsh, R-Anniston, recently endorsed Moore and called for unity among Alabama Republican voters.
The special election will be on Dec. 12, 2017.
