Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan issued the following statement regarding today’s ALGOP Primary Runoff for the U.S. House in District 1:
“The voters of Congressional District 1 had two exceptional candidates to chose from in this runoff.
“Jerry Carl has worked hard for the people of Mobile County as a county commissioner. That background, combined with his business experience, will be a major asset to his constituents as he takes on Capitol Hill. Jerry has a strong reputation for listening to his constituents. His willingness to hear the voices of the people in his district will be a great asset for himself and south Alabama.
“We are grateful for the service of Senator Bill Hightower. His strong conservative voting record has helped our state. We honor his service and recognize his dedication to Alabama. He is to be highly commended for running for this position.
