Barry Moore snags conservative Eagle Forum endorsement in AL-02 runoff race


Eagle Forum PAC announced Wednesday that it is endorsing former Alabama State House representative Barry Moore in Alabama’s 2nd Congressional District runoff election.

Founded by Phyllis Schlafly in 1972, the Eagle Forum is one of the nation’s premier pro-family conservative groups. Through its Eagle Forum PAC, it supports candidates who are committed to a conservative philosophy of limited government, national sovereignty, and traditional values.

”America needs statesmen who will vote on Constitutional principles to protect the next generation instead of mere politicians whose primary goal is to be re-elected,” said Eagle Forum President Eunie Smith. “We expect Mr. Moore to be such a statesman.”

The endorsement went on to highlight Moore’s tenure in the Alabama House, saying ‘his service there rightfully earned him the reputation as the most conservative legislator. We have no doubt that this experience coupled with his determination to address our nation’s challenges at the federal level renders him well qualified.’ 

“I’m proud and humbled to be endorsed by the Eagle Forum,” Moore said of the news. “We share many of the same values, like respect for family integrity, liberty, personal responsibility, limited government, and private enterprise.

Moore is running to replace retiring U.S. Rep. Martha Roby.

He will face Dothan businessman Jeff Coleman in the runoff election, which has been rescheduled from March 31 to July 14 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
