Duck Dynasty's Phil Robertson endorses Roy Moore for Senate

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Candidates for Alabama's U.S. Senate seat are racking up endorsements from people who can't even vote for them, but the publicity they bring could generate buzz (and votes) in a race that's already very tight, according to some polls.

Earlier in the week, Chuck Norris, aka "Walker, Texas Ranger", threw his support to candidate Roy Moore.

Not to be out done, Sen. Luther Strange added perhaps the biggest prize of all for conservatives in the race, a tweeted endorsement from President Donald Trump. He's since rolled out advertisements reminding voters about who Trump wants to see in the Senate.

Moore is now adding the support of reality TV star and duck call maker Phil Robertson to those seeking to make him the next senator from Alabama.

"I have been an admirer for some time of Judge Roy Moore, Robertson said. "He judged with a good understanding of the constitution and the law, but he also understands natural law and who gave us our rights to begin with, Almighty God. Roy Moore will stand up for truth and what’s right, no matter who opposes him, and that is sorely needed in Washington DC. I fully endorse his run for the senate and pray for he and his family."

Moore thanked the reality TV star, who lives in Louisiana, and said the Robertson's "are a great example for the American family. They represent hard work, Christian values and conservative principles, which is what we need to make our nation great again, and to make our nation good again."

The Democratic and Republican primaries are both on Aug. 15. The general election will be in December.
