Press release verbatim from Rich Hobson for Congress
Montgomery, Ala. — Today, the Rich Hobson for Congress Campaign announced the endorsement of former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore. Hobson, who worked for Judge Moore for nearly two decades, is running for Alabama’s second district seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
“I have known Rich Hobson for over 25 years and know his reputation for honesty, integrity, and devotion to duty is above reproach,” said Moore. “He has the experience, wisdom, and ability to tackle tough problems and resolve them expeditiously, which will serve the people of Alabama well in the United States Congress.
“Rich is a husband, father, and grandfather who will fight to preserve the United States Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic. Rich Hobson is a proven leader who will stand up to liberal voices in Congress who seek to disparage our history and destroy the values that have made this country great.”
Moore served as Chief Justice of Alabama from 2000 to 2003 and from 2013 to 2016. Twice, he was removed from that office for refusing to remove a monument to the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Building that acknowledged the sovereignty of God and for upholding the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman. He is a graduate of the United States Military Academy and the University of Alabama School of Law.
Hobson served as the Administrative Director of the Office of Courts during both of Moore’s terms as Chief Justice, also losing his job for refusing to sacrifice his principles. He also served as Executive Director of the Foundation for Moral Law, which Moore founded.
“It has been an honor for me to work under Judge Moore’s leadership for much of my career, and I am honored that he is standing with me now,” said Hobson. “The rock solid convictions and values that he has upheld in the fact of relentless opposition have earned him the respect of men and women of integrity across our state and nation. He certainly has my respect, and I am grateful for his support.”
