Republican candidate Barry Moore thanked God, his family and multiple supporters on Tuesday evening after being called as the winner in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District race.

Moore and supporters watched the poll results come in at SweetCreek Farm Market in Pike Road, Alabama.

“If you know anything about us and our family, you know we want to give the Lord the glory for this win,” Moore said. “It’s been a fascinating journey. Back when this began, we felt called as a family to do this.”

“We’re in a battle for the heart and soul of our nation, and we want to do justly as we go to DC,” Moore continued. “We’re humbled to be here, and we want to continue to walk with Him as we serve this District, this State, and our nation.”

Moore was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 2010 and re-elected in 2014. In 2018, he gave up his seat in the Alabama House of Representatives to challenge incumbent Congresswoman Martha Roby, R-Montgomery. He failed to even make the 2018 Republican primary runoff, and it appeared from the outside that Moore’s career was over.

Roby made the decision to retire after that fifth term, opening up a Republican free for all in the 2020 Republican primary. Moore emerged from the crowded GOP primary field.

“It hasn’t always been easy, but we’ve seen how the Lord can break you, make you and shape you into what he wants you to be,” Moore reflected. “That’s what we’ve been through these last months, and I hope we can continue to go where He calls in the years to come.”
