Leading GOP Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore on Tuesday arrived on horseback to vote in his own special election primary runoff.

Moore, a former state Supreme Court chief justice, has said it’s a tradition for him to travel to the polls on horseback. He also rode a horse to the polls in the first round of the GOP primary in the special election last month.

His wife Kayla followed him on her own horse.

The candidate also made headlines when he pulled out a gun at a campaign rally Monday night to prove that he believes in the Second Amendment.

Moore has earned the backing of conservatives like former White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon, who headlined a rally for him Monday night.

Trump traveled to Alabama last week to stump for Strange in the race.
