Roy Moore gets endorsement from second-ranking Republican in Senate
Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore picked up an endorsement Wednesday from the second-ranking member of the U.S. Senate.
Majority Whip John Cornyn, R-Texas, said he is backing Moore in his Dec. 12 election against Democrat Doug Jones.
As majority whip, Cornyn is the No. 2 Republican in the Senate to Majority Leader Mitch McConnell – whom Moore has called on to resign from his leadership position.
“Alabamians will soon elect a new U.S. Senator and I hope they will vote for the candidate who will follow in former Senator (Jeff) Sessions’ footsteps as a tireless advocate led by principle rather than politics,” Cornyn said in a statement released by the Moore campaign.
“That is why I am proud to offer my support to Judge Roy Moore for U.S. Senate. I look forward to working with him to pass legislation that will effect meaningful change for all Americans.”
“I appreciate Senator Cornyn’s endorsement and I look forward to working with him in the U.S. Senate on ideas to strengthen the military, cut taxes on American families and businesses, reduce government spending, and protect the sanctity of life,” Moore said in a statement.
