Businessman and former Alabama gubernatorial candidate Tim James is throwing his endorsement behind former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore as Moore seeks a return to the high court.
James said of Moore, who is running in the March 13th Republican primary, "Now more than ever, we need a firm reliance on the Constitution of Alabama and the United States. Judge Roy Moore is a man of integrity who does what he says he'll do."
Moore called James "a principled conservative with an in-depth understanding of state government." He added that he looks forward to working with James in the future.
Moore was elected Chief Justice and served in that position from 2001 to 2003. He was removed from his position on the high court after refusing to remove a large statue of the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Supreme Court building.
After being removed from the bench, Moore became Chairman of the Board for the Foundation for Moral Law. He currently serves as that foundation's president.
