Barry Moore gets more endorsements

Congressman Barry Moore

Wednesday, former State Representative Barry Moore’s campaign for Congress announced that it has continued to gather more endorsements and support from leading conservative groups and individuals both in Alabama and nationally.

Moore has been endorsed by the House Freedom Fund, The Club for Growth, the Eagle Forum, the American Workers Coalition, the Christian Conservatives of Alabama and the honorary Alabama Trump Campaign Chairman, State Representative Tim Wadsworth. Moore has also received the support of United States Representative Andy Biggs (R-Arizona), Chair of the House Freedom Caucus, and Representative Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) of the House Freedom Caucus. The Moore campaign said that both Representatives are staunch supporters of President Donald J. Trump (R), and are considered to be part of the “President’s men” in the House.

“It’s humbling when so many groups that care deeply about this country endorse you,” Moore said in a statement. “I’m honored that they think enough of me and my record to make these endorsements. I’ve always tried to stand up for what I believe in, smaller government, lower taxes, more freedom, the Constitution and the rule of law, and to have these groups and Congressmen support me in this race is a blessing.”

“I’ve always been pro-life and pro-2nd Amendment, but if the past few weeks have taught us anything it’s that all of our Constitutional rights have to be vigorously protected each and every day,” Moore continued. “We certainly have the right to peacefully protest, but we also have the right to be protected from lawlessness and senseless violence and destruction.”

Moore is a former state representative, a small businessman, and a veteran. He is running in the July 14 Republican primary runoff for Alabama’s Second Congressional District against Dothan businessman Jeff Coleman.

“As your next Congressman I’ll fight to protect our Constitution and the rights it gives us against the Democrat’s liberal agenda. I’ll fight to rebuild our economy with American industry, American jobs and American workers,” Moore promised. “I’ll fight to build the wall and continue draining the D. C. swamp. I’ll fight because we owe it to our children to do all these things. Endorsements like these only make me more determined to be the conservative leader in Congress our state and Second District must have.”

Incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-Montgomery) is retiring after five terms in Congress.
