Because the special election is this year, any office holder who wants to run can jump in without needing to give up their current post, which could incentivize some GOP politicians to challenge Strange. The biggest and most notorious name out there is Roy Moore, who was suspended as chief justice of the state Supreme Court last year. Moore’s team said back in February that he was considering a Senate bid, as well as runs for governor or attorney general. After Ivey moved the race, Moore scheduled a Wednesday afternoon “announcement” on an unknown topic. Moore was suspended from office last year for defying federal court’s orders on same-sex marriage, which probably will be a plus for most GOP voters.
