Nikki Haley, the Trump administration's former ambassador to the United Nations, came out on Friday in opposition to Roy Moore launching another Senate bid in Alabama.

"Who in the world are his advisors? At what point does he think another run will have a different response?" Haley asked on Twitter.

"He does not represent our Republican Party," the former GOP governor of South Carolina added.

The controversial former Alabama Supreme Court justice announced Thursday that he will seek to challenge Sen. Doug Jones (D-Ala.) for his seat in 2020.

Moore won the Republican nomination for a special election in 2017 to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions when he joined the Trump administration as attorney general.

But Moore's campaign was tainted by allegations that he had pursued sexual and romantic relationships with teenage girls decades ago when he was in his 30s, claims he has denied.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) vowed this week that he and his allies would strongly oppose the former judge's campaign in 2020.

"We'll be opposing Roy Moore vigorously," McConnell told reporters at the Capitol earlier this week.

Other Senate Republicans also came out in opposition of Moore's candidacy.

"Give me a break. This place has enough creepy old men," Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.) said.
