BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
With 95 percent of precincts voting, Roy Moore has been projected as Alabama's new Supreme Court Chief Justice.
Moore won the race with 52 percent of the vote in the most closely watched statewide race.
"What can I say," Moore said in his victory speech. "God is great, God is good. It's been a wonderful victory."
Bill Armistead, Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party, issued the following statement regarding Tuesday's election results:
"I want to congratulate Judge Moore. There is no question that he was the candidate in this race who best represented conservative, Alabama values. I am pleased to know that we will have such a knowledgeable, experienced and capable person at the head of the Alabama Supreme Court."
Moore has served in the legal system in several positions since 1977. He was elected as the Alabama Chief Justice in 2000 and drew national attention for refusing a federal order to remove a granite monument depicting the 10 Commandments from the Alabama Judicial Committee. He was removed from office Nov. 12, 2003.
Vance is currently a circuit court judge in Jefferson County. He may be better known for his father's untimely death. Bob Vance, Sr. was killed by a mail bomb. He ran on a campaign that stresses the need for all lawmakers to come together and work for all Alabamians.
