Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich endorsed Judge Roy Moore on Wednesday and asked for others to join in filling the U.S. Senate seat — vacated this year by the now-U.S. Attorney General — with a man who will help advance President Donald Trump’s agenda.
“There’s nothing more important for advancing the president’s agenda than having another conservative voice in the U.S. Senate – which is why we need Judge Roy Moore in Washington,” said Gingrich. “Roy Moore is a West Point graduate, Vietnam Veteran and constitutional scholar who has been a fighter for our conservative values. He will help rebuild our military and stop the gross overreach of Federal power.”
Gingrich was “proud” to endorse Moore and asked others to join him in his support of the Republican candidate
Moore welcomed Gingrich’s support with hopes of working together “on policy ideas to rebuild the military, reduce spending, and rein in the national debt.”
“Newt Gingrich is a visionary leader, not only for the conservative cause, but for the entire country. The Contract with America of 1994 was a landmark in American political history and forged the modern Republican Party’s identity as a party committed to tax cuts, welfare reform, and fiscal responsibility,” said Moore.
