MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Defeated U.S. Senate candidate Roy Moore's wife has identified the "Jewish" attorney she referred to at a campaign rally. He's a practicing Christian.

Kayla Moore created a stir just before her husband lost to Democrat Doug Jones in the Alabama senate race, when she denied that Moore is anti-Semitic and said "one of our attorneys is a Jew."

She told The Associated Press that she was referring to Martin Wishnatsky, a lawyer at the couple's private Foundation for Moral Law.

Wishnatsky described himself in an email to the AP on Friday as a "Jewish man who has received Christ" as his Savior.
