On Wednesday, August 30, 2017, U.S. Representative Bradley Byrne, R-Montrose, announced that he will not run for Governor of Alabama. Instead, Byrne will seek a third-term representing Alabama’s First Congressional District in 2018. Byrne expects Governor Kay Ivey (R) to run for the office next year.
The popular Gulf Coast Congressman said, “I have made the decision; I will not run for governor next year. After speaking with Gov. Ivey, I think it’s important for the state that we have continuity and stability.”
