10 Commandments judge considers run for governor

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Former Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore
says he is seriously considering making another race for governor
in 2010.

Moore has been running a legal organization, the Foundation for
Moral Law, since losing the Republican primary to incumbent Gov.
Bob Riley in 2006. But in recent weeks, a growing number of
supporters has been calling and visiting Moore, encouraging him to
run again.

Moore says that if he runs, it will be as a Republican. He
expects to make a decision in the spring.

Greenville businessman Tim James has already announced he will
run in the Republican primary. Republican State Treasurer Kay Ivey
is assembling a campaign team, but she hasn't officially announced.
Several other Republicans say they have received encouragement to
consider the race.
