10 Commandments judge considers run for governor

Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore says he is seriously considering making another race for governor in 2010.

Moore has been running a legal organization, the Foundation for Moral Law, since losing the Republican primary to incumbent Gov. Bob Riley in 2006. But in recent weeks, a growing number of supporters has been calling and visiting Moore, encouraging him to run again.

Moore says that if he runs, it will be as a Republican. He expects to make a decision in the spring.

Greenville businessman Tim James has already announced he will run in the Republican primary. Republican State Treasurer Kay Ivey is assembling a campaign team, but she hasn’t officially announced. Several other Republicans say they have received encouragement to consider the race.
