Suspended Alabama Chief Justice Moore running for US Senate

Suspended Alabama Chief Justice Moore running for US Senate

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey appointed Lyn Stuart chief justice of the Alabama Supreme Court after Roy Moore's resignation Wednesday. In referencing Moore, Parker said the former chief justice as "unlawfully removed" from office.

"I share the vision of President Donald Trump to make America great again", Moore explained during a press conference surrounded by supporters, but added, "Before we can make America great again, we've got to make America good again".

Stuart concurred in the 2015 API decision where the Alabama Supreme Court stopped the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples, despite U.S. District Judge Ginny Granade striking down the state's bans on same-sex marriage earlier that year.

Moore, who has been an avid opponent of same-sex marriage throughout his judicial career, now plans to run against U.S. Sen.

His announcement was met with applause and "amen". "Our sacred institution has being destroyed by the Supreme Court".

Fellow Republican Luther Strange, formerly Alabama's attorney general, is filling Sessions's position on an interim basis, and he has said he will seek to retain the seat. I stood up for the Constitution. Yet after Bentley was forced to resign amid a sex scandal, new Gov. Kay Ivey moved the date of the Republican primary forward to August 15, followed by a December 12 general election.

My co-blogger Steven Taylor is in better touch with the pulse of Alabama's voters than I am, since he remains in the state and I've been living in Virginia the past fourteen-plus years. Moore had repeatedly ordered the state's probate judges to defy federal court rulings striking down the state's same-sex marriage ban, including the historic SCOTUS ruling striking down all such bans across the country. An aide told the Advertiser after the announcement Wednesday that Moore had filed paperwork to resign formally as chief justice.

Moore was also removed as chief justice in 2003 after he repeatedly refused to obey a federal court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument from the rotunda of Alabama's judicial building.

N.Korea quiet amid expectation of tests
Haley said the USA wasn't looking for a fight and wouldn't attack North Korea "unless he gives us reason to do something". South Korean and US officials have feared for some time that North Korea's sixth nuclear test could be imminent.

"I have done my duty under the laws of this state to stand for the undeniable truth that God ordained marriage as the union of one man and one woman", Moore said after the ruling. He called the order unlawful, saying he had a right to "acknowledge God".

Other announced candidates include state Rep. Ed Henry and Dr. Chief Justice Stuart is the first female Republican Chief Justice in the history of the State of Alabama.

Moore denied the charge. But he has not been successful in seeking other offices, having lost the Republican primary for governor in 2006 and 2010.

Moore says he had no regrets about his former stances. In a statement distributed after his public remarks Wednesday, Moore said the United States was "founded on the firm rock of conservative Christian values".
