Former State Rep. Barry Moore of Enterprise is up with his first television ad in his campaign for Congress in Alabama’s 2st District.

The 30-second television spot touts Moore’s military and his distinction as the only veteran running for the Republican nomination.

“As the only veteran in this race,  I understand the importance of veterans to our nation,” Moore says in the ad. “Experience is a wonderful teacher, and to serve those you need to have served.  I’ve been in those combat boots. I understand what it’s like.

Current Congresswoman Martha Roby, R-Montgomery, announced last year she would not be seeking a sixth term in the House of Representatives. Moore previously ran for Congress in 2018, unsuccessfully challenging Roby in the GOP Primary.

Five candidates are competing with Moore for the Republican nomination, including former Attorney General Troy King, Dothan businessman Jeff Coleman, Prattville businesswoman Jessica Taylor, Montgomery electrician Bob Rogers and former Bush administration staffer Terri Hasdorff.
