Suspended Alabama Chief Justice and gay marriage opponent Roy Moore announced Wednesday he is running for U.S. Senate.

The fiery Republican jurist, who was suspended from the bench on accusations that he urged defiance of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court decision allowing gays and lesbians to marry, said he will seek the Senate seat previously held by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. He made the announcement in a news conference on the steps of the Alabama Capitol.

Moore told supporters he believes in the vision of President Donald Trump

“We can make America great again, we’ve got to make America good again,”Moore said.

He charged that families are being destroyed by divorce and the US Supreme Court has destroyed the institution of marriage.
