SENATOR JIM DEMINT ON JUDGE ROY MOORE

Montgomery, AL- Today, former South Carolina senator Jim DeMint released a statement on Judge Roy Moore's campaign for U.S. Senate:

"The American people are tired of the lack of leadership on Capitol Hill. They want people who are willing to fight to save our country. Judge Moore has proven he has the courage and the commitment to stand up to the Washington establishment and help President Trump implement a positive agenda. That's why the Kings of the Washington Swamp are working so hard to keep Judge Moore from becoming the next U.S. Senator from Alabama, and why conservatives are supporting him."

"Jim DeMint has served this nation with honor and is a fine example of a Christian statesman," Judge Moore said. "He is someone whom I greatly admire and hope to learn from as I prepare to serve the people of Alabama in the United States Senate."

Jim DeMint served in the United States House of Representatives from 1999 to 2005 and in the United States Senate from 2005 to 2013. While in the Senate, Senator DeMint founded the Senate Conservatives Fund which helped elect many conservatives to the Senate, including Mike Lee, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ron Johnson, Pat Toomey, Ben Sasse, and Tom Cotton, He left the Senate to become president of the Heritage Foundation and currently serves as chairman of the Conservative Partnership Institute.
