Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore, who gained political prominence in a series of legal battles over the display of the Ten Commandments, announced this week he will be a Republican candidate for governor in Alabama's state elections next year.
Moore outlined a five-point platform under his campaign theme - &#8221Return Alabama“ - that includes issues such as term limits, lower taxes, educational choice and talk about values and morality.
Moore's announcement has generated much conversation in the last week.
&#8221I think he would make a good governor,“ Levon Agee Jr. said. &#8221He's a nice person so as far as I know. What we need is a new president.“
Wayne Howard said, &#8221I have to admire him for his standing up for what he believes. I think there are not enough of us taking a stand. If we did, we would still be saying the Pledge of Allegiance or the Lord's Prayer. I don't know enough about his platform to make an informed decision. I think his character would be a leader for the state.“
Ronny Martin said, &#8221I don't think that his religious stance should be his platform.“
Debra Brown said, &#8221I think it's good that he is running. He would make a great governor because of his stance on the Ten Commandments.“
