Felix Barry Moore (born September 26, 1966) is an American politician serving as the U.S. Representative for Alabama's 2nd congressional district since 2021. He represented the 91st district in the Alabama House of Representatives from from 2010 to 2018.[1]

In May 2017, Moore announced his candidacy for the House of Representatives for Alabama's 2nd congressional district against incumbent Republican representative Martha Roby.[2] He finished third in the 2018 Republican primary. After Roby announced in July 2019 that she would not run for reelection in 2020, Moore announced his candidacy for the open seat[3] and advanced to a runoff election against Jeff Coleman. Moore defeated Coleman to win the Republican nomination[4] and defeated Democrat Phyllis Harvey-Hall in the general election.

Moore is one of 147 Republican lawmakers who voted to overturn results in the 2020 presidential election.[5]

Early life and education

Barry Moore grew up on a farm in Coffee County, and attended Enterprise State Community College.[6][7] He later attended Auburn University, where he received a degree in agricultural science in 1992. While attending Auburn, Moore was enlisted in the Alabama National Guard.

In 1998, Moore founded Barry Moore Industries, a waste hauling company.

Alabama House of Representatives

Moore was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives in 2010, defeating Democratic incumbent Terry Spicer.[8] PACs controlled by Mike Hubbard contributed more than $150,000 to his campaign.[8]

Two months after Moore was elected to the State House, he and his wife were awarded a contract with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM). Total payments from ADEM from 2011 through 2013 were $64,612.[8][9]

In April 2014, Moore was arrested for felony perjury and lying to authorities during a grand jury investigation into Hubbard, Moore's friend and mentor.[10] In late 2014, Moore was acquitted of all charges.[8][11]

U.S. House of Representatives



In 2018, Moore challenged incumbent U.S. Representative Martha Roby in the Republican primary for AL-02, placing third behind Roby and former U.S. Representative Bobby Bright.[6]


Moore again sought the nomination in 2020, placing second in the Republican primary and defeating Dothan businessman Jeff Coleman in the runoff.[12] He defeated Democratic nominee Phyllis Harvey-Hall in the general election with 65.2% of the vote.


On January 6, 2021, Moore objected to the certification of the 2020 U.S. presidential election results in Congress. On January 7, he was one of 147 Republican members of Congress to vote to overturn the results immediately after the storming of the U.S. Capitol.[13] On January 10, Moore drew criticism for two posts on Twitter, one of which echoed the false claim of "stealing an election on November 3rd." Both tweets appeared to understate the seriousness of the armed insurrection at the United States Capitol, and Twitter temporarily suspended his account as a result. In response, Moore deactivated his account, alleging censorship of conservative voices.[14] His government account is still operating.

In February 2021, Moore voted against the American Rescue Plan, calling it a "blue state bailout".[15] The same month, he co-signed Bob Good's The Right To Earn A Living Act, which would make state and local governments that implement pandemic-related stay-at-home orders ineligible for funding through the Coronavirus Relief Fund.[16]

In March 2021, during a House vote on a measure condemning the Myanmar coup d'état that overwhelmingly passed, Moore was one of 14 House Republicans to vote against it, for reasons reported to be unclear.[17]

In June 2021, Moore was one of 21 House Republicans to vote against a resolution to give the Congressional Gold Medal to police officers who defended the U.S. Capitol on January 6.[18]

In June 2021, Moore was one of 49 House Republicans to vote to repeal the AUMF against Iraq.[19][20]

In July 2021, Moore voted against the bipartisan ALLIES Act, which would increase by 8,000 the number of special immigrant visas for allies of the U.S. military during its invasion of Afghanistan, while also reducing some application requirements that caused long application backlogs; the bill passed in the House 407–16.[21] Later in August 2021, after the Taliban gained control of Afghanistan, Moore called the American withdrawal from Afghanistan "a painful betrayal of our Afghan allies".[21]
