AFL-CIO retracts Moore endorsement

Posted: Updated:

    The Alabama AFL-CIO is now retracting its endorsement of Roy Moore for state Chief Justice.

    The union announced earlier this week that it would back Moore.  It's the group's only endorsement of a Republican candidate.

    But the AFL-CIO says the decision was only made because Moore is running against Harry Lyon.  The democratic party now says it may remove Lyon from the ballot.

    AFL-CIO leade4rs say they will re-evaluate their endorsement if a new candidate is named.
