ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel spent his Thursday in a Twitter feud with Roy Moore, the Republican candidate in the Alabama Senate election.
During his show Thursday night, Kimmel said if Moore was challenging him to a fight, he would accept:
"Maybe when you say, 'Come down to Alabama and we'll do it man to man,' maybe that means you're challenging me to a fight, which is kind of what it sounds like. And if you are, I accept, by the way. I accept that invitation. There is no one I would love to fight more than you. I will put my Christian values aside, just for you and for that fight."
The conflict started when Kimmel sent Jake Byrd, aka comedian Tony Barbieri, to a Moore rally at an Alabama church on Wednesday, according to AL.com.

The Republican Senate nominee, who is accused of sexual misconduct with teen girls while in his 30s, accused Kimmel of mocking "our Christian values."
"(C)ome down to Alabama and do it man to man," tweeted Moore, whose actual Senate opponent is Democrat Doug Jones.
