BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WDHN) — Former State Rep. Barry Moore has announced his qualification for Alabama’s District 2 seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Moore is now in the running for the position currently held by Rep. Martha Roby, who will retire at the end of her term.
As of now, Moore is the only candidate with any legislative experience, having represented District 91 from 2010 to 2018.
Moore said he plans to help de-regulate Washington D.C.
“It’s cutting waste, finding areas where the government spends money unnecessarily and reduce waste and from there, I think you grow the economy by decreasing regulations,” he said.
Moore is one of five Republicans running for the positions and is one of three candidates from the Wiregrass, the others being former Attorney General Troy King and Dothan businessman Jeff Coleman.
