ALABAMA (WKRG) — Judge Roy Moore got the biggest “thumbs up” that any endorsement could offer in his run for U.S. Senate in Alabama on Monday.
You guessed it. Moore was endorsed by “Walker, Texas Ranger” actor Chuck Norris.
“Judge Roy Moore is the real deal: He’s tough, tested, and has a spine of steel,” said Norris. “The Washington establishment knows they won’t be able to count on him, but Alabama voters can. Judge Moore has never backed down from standing for what is right, and that’s exactly what he’ll do in the U.S Senate. That’s why the Washington establishment is spending millions trying to defeat Judge Moore.
Moore is facing stiff competition in his Senate run from current seat holder Luther Strange, Congressman Mo Brooks, State Senator Tripp Pittman, among others.
The former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court could think of no better sidekick… to sidekick his opponents.
“Chuck Norris is exactly the kind of guy you want on your side, and I’m honored to have his support as we continue this fight to take our Alabama values to Washington,” said Moore.
Norris is also the subject of the never-ending joke pertaining to his manliness and toughness, particularly online.
“Alabama needs Judge Moore there doing what he’s always done: fighting to protect our constitutional rights to life, religious liberty, and the freedom to protect ourselves and our families. And he will always put principle over politics,” said Norris.
Norris is a veteran of the U.S. Air Force, an author, and, in addition to his television role, has starred in numerous action films. He is an active supporter of conservative candidates and causes, including veterans organizations and initiatives.
