'The Betting Favorite': Meet the Front-Runner for Sessions' Seat, Roy Moore
By Alex Pappas | Fox News
He has been removed as chief justice of Alabama’s Supreme Court not once, but twice.
He is famously referred to as the “Ten Commandments Judge.”
He traditionally rides a horse to the polls on election day.
Meet Roy Moore, the new front-runner for the Alabama Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
The ex-justice is heading into a Sept. 26 runoff with Luther Strange, the appointed senator endorsed by President Trump, after neither candidate was able to clinch the nomination in Tuesday's GOP Senate primary.
But while Strange enjoyed high-level backing, Moore won 39 percent of the vote Tuesday to the incumbent's 33 percent. He also bested Mo Brooks, a conservative congressman. The longtime outsider is now seen as having a shot at joining the U.S. Senate.
