GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore arrived in style at his local polling station on Tuesday, showing up on horseback to vote for himself in his hotly-contested special election against Democrat Doug Jones.
Video of Moore’s arrival surfaced on social media Tuesday, showing the Alabama judge and his wife riding into Gallant, Alabama to cast their crucial vote.

This isn’t the first time Moore rode his horse –reportedly named ‘Sassy’- to his polling station.
The judge also rode horseback to cast his vote during his GOP primary challenge against sitting Alabama Senator Luther Strange.
The embattled nominee is facing a tough challenge from Democrat Doug Jones after weeks of accusations of sexual misconduct have plagued Moore’s campaign. Last month, the GOP hopeful was accused of pursuing inappropriate sexual relationships with multiple women when they were teenagers nearly 40 years ago.
BARACK STRIKES BACK: Obama Jumps into Alabama Senate Race, RIPS Roy Moore
Former President Barack Obama waded into Alabama’s special election race on Monday, blasting GOP nominee Roy Moore in a series of recorded phone messages that urged residents to “get out and vote” for Democrat Doug Jones.
“Doug Jones is a fighter for equality, for progress,” says the former President. “Doug will be our champion for justice. So, get out and vote, Alabama.”
“This one’s serious,” Obama adds. “You can’t sit it out.”
President Donald Trump recorded a similar message last week, imploring GOP supports to help send Roy Moore to the United States Congress; adding that the last thing Alabama residents want is Doug Jones representing them in the US Senate.
“We need Roy voting for us,” Trump says in the recording. “I am stopping illegal immigration and crime. We’re building a stronger military and protecting the Second Amendment and our pro-life values. But if Alabama elects liberal Democrat Doug Jones, all of our progress will be stopped cold. We already know Democrat Doug Jones is a puppet of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, and he will vote with the Washington liberals every single time.”
Embattled GOP Senate hopeful Roy Moore is behind in recent polling, following weeks of controversies surrounding his candidacy. Last month, multiple women came forward and acused the Alabama judge of inappropriate sexual relationships while the women were teenagers nearly 40 years ago.
