MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The man who ran Roy Moore's failed campaign for the U.S. Senate is running for Congress in Alabama.
Rich Hobson announced Wednesday that he is running as a Republican for the 2nd District congressional seat now held by Rep. Martha Roby.
In addition to being Moore's campaign manager, Hobson twice served as Alabama's administrative director of courts while Moore was chief justice. He also served as director of Moore's Foundation of Moral Law.
Hobson says the "liberal elite" pulled off a "political assassination" of Moore in November's Senate election. Moore lost to Democrat Doug Jones amid accusations that Moore committed sexual misconduct with teens decades ago. Moore has denied the allegations.
Hobson says his priorities include repealing President Barack Obama's health overhaul law and building a border wall with Mexico.
