On Thursday, the Roy Moore for U.S. Senate Campaign announced the endorsement of noted Alabama evangelist, Scott Dawson, whose ministry has reached thousands of pastors and students across Alabama and the southeast through events like the Strength to Stand Tour and Conference.
“The person we must elect as our U.S. Senator on December 12th is Judge Roy Moore,” Dawson said. “As a conservative, he shares my core values of being pro-life, supporting limited government and he is deeply committed to his Christian spiritual convictions.”
“I ask every true conservative across Alabama to stand with Roy Moore,” Dawson continued. “Republican control of the U.S. Senate, future Supreme Court nominees, and President Trump’s agenda are all at stake – we MUST go to the polls and elect Roy Moore. Please join me today in praying for and supporting Roy Moore for the U.S. Senate.”
Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Moore welcomed Dawson’s support.
“Scott Dawson is a person of deep character and wisdom and God has used Scott’s ministry to transform the lives of thousands of people,” Moore said. “I am grateful for Scott’s support, because people of faith are the bedrock of this nation. A church outreach ministry can give hope to a despairing soul and rescue a struggling family far more quickly than any government program.”
Scott Dawson is a 2018 candidate for governor of Alabama.
The endorsement follows a string of high profile endorsements for the Moore Campaign ahead of the December general election.
On Wednesday, Speaker of the Alabama House of Representatives Mac McCutcheon, R-Monrovia, also endorsed Moore, saying, “I am pleased to add my name to the continually-growing list of those endorsing Judge Roy Moore in his bid to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions.”
Alabama Senate President Del Marsh, R-Anniston, announced his endorsement of Moore last week.
“This is a time for unity Alabama Republicans voted overwhelmingly to elect Judge Moore as our nominee for the United States Senate, and I will support our nominee,” Marsh said. ‘The liberal policies of the Obama Era – embraced by Democrat Doug Jones – have failed, and we must do all we can to support our president.”
“If Alabamians want to ensure that President Trump has another ally in the United States Senate, then it is imperative that they support the Republican nominee,” Marsh said.
