Roy Moore cracking door on future run for office

Roy Moore

Defeated Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore is opening the door to a possible return to politics.

Moore told reporters at a news conference Monday that he doesn’t plan to run for anything, including governor at this time.

But Moore issued a statement Thursday saying plans change. It quotes Moore as saying he won’t be reluctant to seek office again “if the opportunity arises.” And he says that includes the governorship.

The Republican Moore lost the Senate race to Democrat Doug Jones after women came forward claiming Moore made sexual advances on them years ago when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers.

Moore denies wrongdoing, and he’s filed suit claiming to be the victim of a conspiracy. One of Moore’s accusers is suing him for defamation.

  1. Roy Moore is reason Doug Jones represents us. Roy was a flawed candidate and split the republican vote vote.. now this failed has been wants to get back on taxpayer dime, problem is good old Roy could again divide gop and give governor to a democrat. Thanks but no thanks Roy. As odd as it seems, would rather see switchback bobby bright. At least we know he picks sides depending on political wind. Roy, take bobbywith you when you leave. Have a nice day.
