Barry Moore visited Trump a few days before positive test
It’s not known if Moore will be tested, voluntarily quarantine, or if there is a need for either under protocols.
ENTERPRISE, Ala. (WTVY) -Congressional candidate Barry Moore spent time last week with President Trump, who has tested positive for coronavirus. Moore met with Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence at the White House on September 23.
It’s not known if Moore will be tested, voluntarily quarantine, or if there is a need for either under protocols. An email has been sent to Moore’s staff seeking clarification.
His campaign issued a statement Friday sending his prayers to the Trumps and Hope Hicks, a presidential aide who has also tested positive.
“Our family is praying for the President and First Lady for their protection, healing, and rapid recovery from the COVID virus. I believe the American people will rally in prayer around our great leader and all those around him, especially Ms. Hicks, as they recover from this virus,” the statement said.
Moore, who lives in Enterprise, won the Republican nomination among a field of seven candidates and faces Democrat Phyllis Harvey-Hicks on November 3.
