Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., endorsed Republican Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race on Tuesday, the Washington Examiner reports.

"Judge Roy Moore has spent a lifetime defending and standing up for the Constitution while fighting for the people of Alabama," Paul said. “We need more people in Washington, D.C. that will stand on principle and defend the Constitution. I look forward to welcoming him to the Senate very soon."

Moore welcomed Paul's support, The Hill reported.

"I am honored to receive the support and endorsement of Sen. Rand Paul, ​for whom I have great admiration and respect as fellow defender of our conservative principles​,​" he said.

The former chief judge of the Alabama Supreme Court, Moore had picked up the endorsement of Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, on Monday.

Moore defeated Sen. Luther Strange, R-Ala., in the primary runoff last month. He is facing Democrat Doug Jones in the December special election.
