“Ten Commandments” Judge Roy Moore, a candidate for the U.S. Senate in the race to fill Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ former seat, rode on horseback to the polling booth on Tuesday.
According to Moore, who has been leading the race in recent polling over establishment Mitch McConnell-backed stooge Luther Moore and Congressman Mo Brooks, posted a video of the ride on Twitter, telling his followers that riding to the polls on voting day (the special election is today) is a long-held family tradition:
We carried on our family's tradition of saddling up and heading to vote on horseback today!

McConnell lap dog Luther Strange curiously has the endorsement of President Donald Trump even as Trump feuds with McConnell, the Senate Surrender Caucus leader over his failure to fulfill the Republican Party seven-year long promise to repeal Obamacare.
Breaking with Trump, Trump loyalist Sean Hannity has thrown his support behind Congressman Mo Brooks, who is a solid and reliable conservative. Mark Levin has also endorsed Brooks and has criticized the president’s endorsement of Strange.
“His candidate in Alabama is Luther Strange,” Mark Levin said about Trump’s endorsement. “Luther Strange is in Mitch McConnell’s back pocket. The man has been there six months. He’s a crony. He can’t fill Jeff Sessions’ shoes. He’s terrible. — even has some ethical issues swirling around him. But it doesn’t matter to McConnell, just like Thad Cochran in Mississippi.”
Judge Roy Moore, who is famous for standing up against the U.S. Supreme Court tyrants in matters like homosexual marriage and the Ten Commandments, has endorsements ranging from Chuck Norris to former Focus on the Family head Dr. James Dobson. Conservative talk show host Steve Deace also endorses Judge Moore.
Here are the two most recent polls in the Alabama Senate race, one showing Moore with a large lead and the other showing establishment favorite Luther Strange with a lead within the margin of error:
While Trump’s endorsement of Luther Strange is highly disturbing, it should not be viewed as “surprising.” Trump endorsed establishment RINO Mitch McConnell and his “F” Liberty Score (presently 42% out of 100) over Tea Party-backed Matt Bevin in McConnell’s 2014 re-election bid (Bevin went on to become Governor of Kentucky, so he came out just fine).
As FOX News recently noted, Luther Strange became a temporary U.S. Senator under less than favorable circumstances (understated):
Strange, the state’s former attorney general, was temporarily appointed to the seat in April after Sessions joined the Trump administration. His opponents have used that appointment from former Gov. Robert Bentley against him: Strange’s office was investigating Bentley at the time the governor made him senator. Bentley has since resigned from office in scandal.
