Roy Moore won the United States Senate primary runoff on Sept. 26.

The runoff was only open to voters who had participated in the Republican primary election or had not voted in the primary election at all.

Moore received 247,553 votes (nearly 55 percent), while his opponent Luther Strange received 203,435 votes (45 percent).

“I’m glad he won,” Chilton County resident Bob Groves said.

He said Moore’s Christian values and standing up for what he believes in make him a good candidate for Senator.

While James Darnell said he “stands for Roy Moore and everything he stands for,” Darnell has some concerns about how much he would be able to accomplish with the other members of Congress.

“I thought Luther probably could have gotten more done because he fits in with them better than Roy does,” Darnell said.

He commented that he is looking forward what Moore can accomplish if he wins the General Election.

Sandra Little said she voted for Moore and “feels great” that he won. Little said she thought he was a good candidate because he is a Christian and supports traditional marriage.

Moore will face Democrat Doug JonesĀ in the General Election for U.S. Senate on Dec. 12.
