Legendary martial artist and film star Chuck Norris has officially endorsed his candidate to fill a Senate seat left vacant by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, naming former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore as his pick to fill the empty position.
According to local news, the “Texas Ranger” made the announcement earlier this week, saying Moore is the “real deal” who has a “spine of steel.”
“Judge Roy Moore is the real deal: He’s tough, tested, and has a spine of steel,” said Norris. “The Washington establishment knows they won’t be able to count on him, but Alabama voters can. Judge Moore has never backed down from standing for what is right, and that’s exactly what he’ll do in the U.S Senate.”
Moore thanked Norris for the ringing endorsement, saying the film star is exactly “the kind of guy you want on your side.”
“Chuck Norris is exactly the kind of guy you want on your side, and I’m honored to have his support as we continue this fight to take our Alabama values to Washington,” said the former Justice.
“Alabama needs Judge Moore there doing what he’s always done: fighting to protect our constitutional rights to life, religious liberty, and the freedom to protect ourselves and our families. And he will always put principle over politics,” added Norris.
