FAIRHOPE, Ala. (AP/WKRG) – Wounded by allegations of sexual misconduct, Alabama Republican Roy Moore is embracing his role as outsider in the Alabama race for U.S. Senate.
Speaking at a Tuesday night rally at Oak Hollow Farm in Fairhope, Moore said establishment Republicans “don’t want me” in Washington. He promised an enthusiastic crowd that he will be a supporter of President Donald Trump’s agenda.
Moore called the election a “spiritual battle.”
The former judge, known for religious-themed politics, used social issues to rally the crowd, criticizing legalized abortion and the presence of transgender individuals serving in the military.
Moore says he “can’t wait” to take “Alabama values to Washington, D.C.”
