Barry Moore promises to “fight against the destructive ideas of the Democrats”

Barry Moore

Republican congressional candidate Barry Moore on Tuesday said he will fight what he called the “destructive” ideas of the Democratic Party.

“When I’m elected to represent District 2,” he said, “I’ll fight against the destructive ideas of the Democrats and support our President.”

Moore was responding to the Democratic National Committee’s online convention by pointing out what he called the marked differences between the Democrats’ rhetoric and the actual record of President Donald Trump.

“The Democrats have made their national convention all about divisiveness and negativity, purely for the purposes of tearing down our great nation and our president,” said Moore. “Judging by the horrible ratings, the American people aren’t buying what the Democrats are trying to sell.”

“The Democrats and their allies ignored the tremendous economic turnaround we’d enjoyed before the COVID pandemic,” Moore continued. “They ignored how our 150,000 COVID deaths so far, while tragic, is still far, far below the 2.2 million estimated deaths that were predicted just a few months ago. They ignored what we’ve seen come from their policies: Seattle and Portland descending into chaos and anarchy, and the long-term disasters that Democrat rule has brought to great cities like Baltimore, Chicago, San Francisco, and Detroit.”

“As for Democrat promises, remember ‘If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor’?” Moore stated. “Instead of focusing on working together to solve our nation’s problems, they’re more concerned about ousting this President and imposing their own failed ideas on the rest of us.”

“When I’m elected to represent District 2 in Congress, I’ll take our Alabama common sense and conservative values to Washington, D.C.” Moore promised, “I’ll fight against the destructive ideas of the Democrats and support our President as he continues to lead us in the years to come. Until then, I’m asking everyone across our District, Alabama, and America to lift up our nation in prayer, that we might come together to stand as one nation, under God.”

Moore is on the Nov. 3 ballot as the Republican candidate for the 2nd Congressional District. He faces Democratic nominee Phyllis Harvey-Hall.

Moore was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. In 2018 he challenged incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby, R-Montgomery, but lost in the Republican primary. In 2020, Roby did not run for re-election.

Moore emerged from a crowded GOP primary field to narrowly make the runoff. Moore defeated Dothan businessman Jeff Coleman in the Republican primary runoff last month. Moore has a degree from Auburn University. He and his wife Heather own a waste disposal business in Enterprise. He is a small businessman, veteran, husband and father of four.
