Four of the justices who served on the Alabama Supreme Court with former Chief Justice Roy Moore are among 10 bipartisan former and current justices who have signed a letter endorsing Moore's opponent in the Nov. 6 chief justice election.
Moore's opponent in the chief justice race, Democrat Bob Vance, held a news conference Tuesday in front of the Alabama Judicial Building to release the letter.
Alabama Supreme Court candidate Roy Moore says same-sex marriage will lead to the "ultimate destruction" of America. The Republican nominee for chief justice made his comments during a Tea Party rally in Fort Payne on Saturday. Moore says same-sex marriage will lead to the nation's demise because it attacks the nation's foundation. Moore says the Democratic national platform is divisive for supporting same-sex rights. Moore's Democratic opponent for chief justice, Jefferson County Circuit Judge Robert Vance, says same-sex marriage isn't an issue in Alabama.
