A former chief justice in Alabama who had displayed the Ten Commandments in his court lost a Republican primary for governor. With 70 percent of precincts reporting, Roy Moore was losing to Gov. Bob Riley by 64 percent to 36 percent in Tuesday’s primary, The New York Times reported. Moore took challenges to his display of a Ten Commandments monument all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, which ordered the monument removed in May 2004.
