GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) -- Ousted Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore announced his candidacy for governor Monday, likely setting up a showdown with Republican incumbent Bob Riley and turning Moore's Ten Commandments fight into a political campaign issue.
Moore made the announcement in Gadsden, where he first gained national recognition as a circuit judge fighting to keep a homemade plaque of the Ten Commandments displayed in his courtroom.
