Former Alabama Supreme Court Chief Roy Moore, who had been suspended for his anti-equal marriage orders, would like to become a U.S. senator.

Remember last year, Judge Moore was suspended after sending an e-mail to all probate judges in Alabama.

He wrote that they didn't have to follow the Supreme Court's decision on same-sex marriages and allows them not to issue marriage licenses to LGBT couples if they did not want to do it.

A commission found this recommendation illegal and had suspended the Alabama Supreme Court Chief.

Now Moore is running for a U.S. Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

He opposes to "socialized medicine" and the Obama Health and Human Services abortion coverage mandate in addition to LGBT rights.

The Republican Primary will take place on August 15. Obviously, one hopes for Moore's defeat. After the primary, each Republican candidate will face a Democratic candidate on December 12, 2017.
