Moore for Gov?
Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Judge Roy Moore, who stood by his Ten Commandments monument in Montgomery last year and was booted from the court for disobeying a court order, says he might run for governor in 2006.
This could make him a primary challenger to Republican Governor Bob Riley, who was with him on the monument up until Moore disobeyed the court order.
The Supreme Court says it will hear such a case in 2005.
It sounds like Judge Moore is being touted by friends, perhaps sycophants, and can do nothing but say he will pray and consider. If he has the financial backing, a run against Riley won't hurt so long as Moore does not try to damage him. If Riley feels the challenge and starts throwing out the "religious radical right" innuendo so favored by the left, he's going to alienate a constituency he'll doubtlessly need.
