Alabama Republican Roy Moore is not taking no for an answer.

The former judge, who lost a Senate special election to Democrat Doug Jones in 2017, is reportedly eyeing another run in 2020.

“I’m seriously considering it, I think it (the 2017 race) was stolen,” Moore said on American Family Radio on Friday. “I think that’s been pronounced in the national newspapers — The New York Times, The Washington Post even — recognized there was a disinformation campaign going on in September of 2017 by forces outside of Alabama that spent a lot of money not regulated by the FEC in trying to dissuade Republicans from voting and encourage and enrage Democrats.”

Jones and Moore faced off in a contentious battle for the seat left open when Jeff Sessions left to serve as President Trump’s attorney general.

Moore, 72, faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct leading up to that election and lost the December 2017 race by about 20,000 votes.

In the weeks leading up to Election Day, four women accused him of sexually pursuing them while they were teenagers.

Moore has denied the shocking and disturbing allegations against him, including claims that he molested a 14-year-old and sexually assaulted a 16-year-old in the late 1970s when he was in his 30s.

A defiant Moore refused to concede defeat to Jones and continued asking for donations from his supporters as late as last March.

“I have struggled to make ends meet, but I have not lost my faith in our God, who is our true source of strength, and will never leave or forsake us,” Moore wrote on Facebook.

If Moore runs, he could find himself once again running against former federal prosecutor Jones, whose term is up in 2020.
