Constitution Party Still Courting Moore

By Associated Press

Montgomery, AL – The Alabama Constitution Party is urging voters to write in Roy Moore's name for governor on the November seventh ballot, but the former candidate for governor says he is not involved in the effort. MaryAnn Crum, chairman of the Alabama Constitution Party, announced yesterday that the party's executive board endorsed a grassroots movement to write in Moore's name for governor. She said the write-in effort is needed because neither Republican Governor Bob Riley nor Democratic Lieutenant Governor Lucy Baxley would make any policy differences in Alabama. She said she expects a good number of votes for Moore, but -- quote - the reality is it's not likely to change the outcome of the election. Moore said Thursday he's heard from plenty of frustrated voters who are tired of special interest candidates that don't represent their values. The Constitution Party has had candidates on the ballot in some past elections in Alabama, but the party did not try to run a slate of candidates for statewide offices this year.
