Jerry Falwell, Jr., Endorses Judge Roy Moore in Alabama Senate Race

MONTGOMERY, Ala. – Jerry Falwell, Jr., today announced his endorsement of Judge Roy Moore in Alabama’s U.S. Senate race. Falwell, the president of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, called the Alabama Senate election a “pivotal moment” for President Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda.

“I am proud to endorse a proven conservative leader in Judge Roy Moore. Like President Trump, Judge Moore speaks plainly and he will not back down from his convictions,” Falwell said. “Judge Moore will defend religious liberty, stand up for the Constitution, and be a voice for people of faith in the halls of Washington.”

“President Trump needs allies like Judge Roy Moore in the U.S. Senate. Too many Republicans in Washington are more interested in currying favor with lobbyists and preserving their own political careers than they are in advancing President Trump’s proposals,” Falwell remarked. “The Alabama Senate election is a pivotal moment for the success of the Trump agenda, and I urge conservatives in Alabama to back Roy Moore on December 12th.”

Judge Moore said Thursday afternoon that he appreciated Falwell’s support.

“I welcome Jerry Falwell, Jr.’s, endorsement. In the Constitution and in the Declaration of Independence, America’s founders clearly welcomed people of faith into the political process,” Moore said. “If elected to the U.S. Senate, I will work with President Trump to ensure that our First Amendment religious liberties are protected and that conservative judges who closely adhere to the Constitution will be confirmed to the federal courts.”
