Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has endorsed Republican Roy Moore in the race for U.S. Senate in Alabama, The Birmingham News reported.

Announcement of the Gingrich endorsement was made by the Moore camp on Wednesday, according to the newspaper.

"There's nothing more important for advancing the President's agenda than having another conservative voice in the U.S. Senate — which is why we need Judge Roy Moore in Washington," Gingrich said in the announcement. "Roy Moore is a West Point graduate, Vietnam veteran and constitutional scholar who has been a fighter for our conservative values. He will help rebuild our military and stop the gross overreach of federal power.

"I'm proud to endorse Judge Roy Moore for senator and ask you to join me in supporting him."

Moore, who is competing against Democrat Doug Jones in the Dec. 12 election, welcomed the endorsement.

"Newt Gingrich is a visionary leader, not only for the conservative cause, but for the entire country," Moore said.

Moore was on Capitol Hill this week, The Washington Post noted. He has said in the past he was opposed to Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., as Senate majority leader. But when asked about McConnell, Moore said he was "not going to give an opinion."
